Gala Events and Charity Fundraisers
The Craig Duncan Orchestra has played for numerous charity balls and special galas. Many of these events are repeat performances as the band has been asked back year after year.
Music styles and selections are custom-tailored to fit whatever the occasion calls for. See our list of Bands and Classical Ensembles for some ideas.

What others have to say:
. . . This past weekend we were in Huntsville for the The Symphony Ball and we absolutely fell in love with your band!! The choice of songs were perfect for the event. We are only nineteen but we have already called our dads to book us for our future weddings...so look out for us (:
We were wondering if you and your band had a CD and if so, where could we purchase it? Thank you so much for your time and for an unforgettable night in Huntsville!
One of the great things about charing the Symphony Ball is learning about some of the wonderful people who make the Ball such a success year after year. You have been so generous in helping give the 2004 Symphony Ball attendees a beautiful evening that everyone enjoyed to the fullest... Everyone talked about how great the music was that evening. Many thanks!
Elaine, Nashville Symphony Ball.
Thank you so much for helping O'More College of Design give our supporters a wonderful evening. The music and vocalists were wonderful, and working with you was great.

The music for this year's Symphony Ball was a delight from every perspective - well chosen, well played, and passionately delivered. You and the entire orchestra showed Nashville's finest colors. On behalf of all of us involved in the Symphony, Bravo! to you and the orchestra.
Stephen R. Vann, Nashville Symphony Ball.
