CMSO members perform for Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White

CHICAGO, Ill. — Members of the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra performed at the 4th annual “Walk Away the Waiting,” an event hosted by “Life Goes On,” the Organ/Tissue Donor Registry Program of Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White.

“Walk Away the Waiting” is part of National Minority Donor Awareness Week, an annual effort to increase awareness of the need for more organ, eye, and tissue donors, especially among minorities.

This is the second time that the CMSO has partnered with “Life Goes On.” Last May, the CMSO hosted “Life Goes On” with a donor recipient in a talk before our concert titled “Getting Organ-ized,” featuring Saint-SaĆ«ns “Organ” Symphony.

The Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra is proud to partner with organizations like “Life Goes On” as part of our ongoing community engagement campaigns. If your organization would like to partner with us, send us a message today.

Celebrating our 95th season!
