Celebrate Colburn Gala 2024

Celebrate Colburn Gala

Join fellow patrons, artists, and students for the Celebrate Colburn Gala, our hallmark annual event featuring exuberant performances and comradery to raise philanthropic support for scholarships and academic programs. This season will be a matinee affair on Sunday, April 7, 2024, with an inspired performance in Zipper Hall by the Colburn Orchestra under the baton of Artistic Honoree Maestro James Conlon followed by a festive lunch on the Colburn Plaza. Be the first to get your tickets.

Tickets are available now. All supporters who make an early commitment by January 15 will be part of the Celebration Committee and be recognized in the event program. 




The Celebrate Colburn Gala is a wonderful tribute to the power of the performing arts. More importantly, it raises vital funds for the school so that we can continue to offer a transformational music and dance education to our students, regardless of their financial circumstances. Learn how donations allow us to educate and inspire students across the world. 

The Celebrate Colburn Gala is also an opportunity for you and your family, friends, and colleagues to join us for a wonderful day filled with music, dance and festivities! Ticket holders can enjoy: 

  • A celebratory champagne reception and brunch on the Colburn Plaza. 
  • A Colburn Orchestra performance in Colburn’s Zipper Hall, our acoustically superb 415-seat concert venue, led by Artistic Honoree James Conlon in a full Mozart program. 

Additionally, the Gala honors members of the artistic community who have made a significant contribution to the Arts. This year we are proud to recognize James Conlon as our Artistic Honoree. Learn more about James Conlon.
