The Alys Stephens Center’s Jemison Concert Hall will be the setting for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s Maestro’s Ball on Oct. 7.
Laura and Jesse Vogtle (pictured) are the hosts for this year’s annual fundraiser for the ASO. Nick Willis is the corporate chair. Pianist Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner is the guest artist and Carlos Izcaray is conductor.
The event, which begins at 6 p.m., is ASO’s largest fundraiser of the year. Through it, Birmingham’s corporate community and individual contributors help raise as much as 10% of the ASO’s operating budget. In addition to helping underwrite the ASO’s concert series, funds help the ASO reach a large and diverse audience through free community engagement performances, a statewide tour and education programs that serve approximately 25,000 students annually.
