What We Do
We produce turn-key fundraising musical events pairing popular music recording artists with orchestras
Individuals tasked with fundraising more than ever require novel and inventive methods. Dinners and 5Ks can be reliable but many donors, sponsors and participants are fatigued with these and craving something different and powerful.
Orchestral Events’ formula is to combine the audience attraction power of hit song recording artists from the 60s, 70s and 80s, with the emotional affinity of nostalgia that takes on entire new levels of excitement when energized by the full-bodied sound of an orchestra.
We specialize in serving clients and communities located in mid-sized markets where “home town” values and traditions still thrive. Places where family matters, businesses and benefactors support local causes and a community or college orchestra is central in the area’s arts and entertainment life.
Above all – Orchestral Events strives to be a capacity-builder differentiated from conventional and exhausted fundraising methods like walks, golf outings, telethons and others that are high in complexity, risk and resource requirements.

Orchestral Events can apply our expertise to Corporate Musical Events.

Orchestral Events specializes in high efficiency low stress rehearsals and sound checks that achieve outstanding performances. Musical Director / Arranger Mariano Longo believes that technicians, orchestral musicians and featured recording artists do not have to be “whipped into compliance” – they simply must be provided clarification of expectations in an authentic and professional manner. Most Orchestral Events rehearsals turn out to be a lot of fun – with some laughs and fond memories that endure.
Turn-key Stage Plot
Orchestral Events maintains a wide range of templates that enable turn-key functionality. As an example, the diagram (below) will help those involved to know well in advance how to configure the stage.
How often does one see a Musical Director and Arranger highly involved – hands on – in the stage set? In this photo – Mariano Longo (center) would have it no other way! It’s authentic and it is this kind of focus on being involved with the team – with attention to detail that achieves consistent results. Knowing Mariano – if there were a leak in a concert hall roof he’d be up there helping!
