Enhance your concert experience! Join us for Pre-Concert Chats to learn about the music. Shop for unique gifts at the ESO League Boutique, located in the lobby.
Musically Speaking Pre-Concert Chats
To further your learning experience, don’t forget to attend a “Musically Speaking Pre-Concert Chat” one hour before Classics Concerts begin at the concert venue. Chats are often led by guest conductors and guest artists!
ESO League Boutique
Long, draped tables full of brilliant colors and glittering lights surrounded by crowds of shoppers make the Elgin Symphony League Boutique in the lobby of the Hemmens Cultural Center hard to miss! Operated by the Elgin Symphony League, it is a one-stop shopping adventure that offers guests, volunteers and musicians a delightful way to enhance an ESO concert.
The League members choose items based on the concert theme or a holiday season. Luring browsers and buyers in with a wide array of musical themed mugs, ornaments, jewelry, scarves and unique gifts, audience members always look forward to seeing what is “new this time!”
The purchases at the Boutique go towards helping fund the Elgin Symphony Orchestra. The boutique accepts cash, check and VISA and MasterCard credit cards.
To contact the Elgin Symphony League, please email League@elginsymphony.org.
The purpose of the League is to support the Elgin Symphony Orchestra Association’s mission through actively volunteering time, talents and enthusiasm, thus encouraging others of all ages and backgrounds in the Fox Valley to participate in the ESO mission.
