“Queen of Soul” Aretha Franklin will belt it out with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for the CSO Association’s annual Corporate Night on Monday, May 20 at 7:30 PM. The event pays special tribute to Chicago’s business community every year with a one-night-only performance which pairs CSO musicians with pop artists. Funds from this event benefit the symphony’s general operations and nationally recognized community engagement and music education programs.

Sponsorships begin at $25,000 and table packages range from $800-$16,000. Corporations who would like to attend are asked to call corporate development at 312-294-3153.
