CSO Hosts Murder Mystery Masquerade For Young Professionals

Monday, October 9, 2017

The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera is aiming to draw a new generation of prospective patrons to the CSO with their upcoming event, Symphony Masquerade. The murder mystery event occurs at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21, at a manor in downtown Chattanooga. 

"The CSO is constantly seeking new ways to instill a sense of excitement for classical music,” said Matthew Hubbard, CSO Development and Special Events manager. “The Symphony Masquerade murder mystery event continues our mission to engage young professionals and showcase how the CSO can be incorporated into any day, any month, and any season. This time, it happens to be with a murder mystery.” 

Guests are encouraged to come in costume as they mingle with musicians while enjoying signature drinks and hors d’oeuvres to the sounds of a live performance by the CSO Wind Quintet – until a masquerader is murdered. Guests will then be able to find clues and interact with actors as they race to solve the murder mystery. Prizes will be awarded to the first person able to solve the murder. 

The location will not be announced to the public, with attendees receiving the address after registration. Tickets are $50 and include the murder mystery game, food and a drink ticket, with additional drinks available at the cash bar. All proceeds from ticket and drink sales will benefit the CSO’s music education programs. Tickets can be purchased online at
