The Society Ball: A Virtual Soirée

Saturday, September 26 at 6:30pm EDT

Join us for a digital presentation featuring exclusive newly-recorded performances from our H+H musicians and students. We’ve been hard at work this summer creating a dynamic experience to share with you in place of our annual in-person gala. We hope you’ll tune in!

We will also have a silent auction, opening in mid-September.

Proceeds from this event will support our education and artistic programs.

For more information about the event, please contact our Development Department at or 617.262.1815.


Join us for free through our live stream or purchase a Virtual Pass for additional exclusive access to performances, a cocktail hour with H+H musicians, and a VIP gift box. Click below for pricing and additional benefits.
