In an evening surpassing expectations, the event raised over $1 million towards the mission and ongoing operations for the Colorado Symphony. This year’s Colorado Symphony Ball raised money through table sales, individual and corporate contributions, sponsorship, silent and live auction, and real-time voting during “THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS” segment of the evening, where guests voted for their favorite band. This year’s bands were the Colorado Symphony, The DaVita Blues All Stars, and Tracksuit Wedding. The Colorado Symphony welcomed Debbie and Jim Shpall as Event Chairs. Governor John Hickenlooper, Mayor Michael B. Hancock, and First Lady Mary Louise Lee served as Honorary Co-Chairs.
