2019 Gala

“An Evening on Broadway” Gala Benefit Set For April 14

Plan now to join us for the Virginia Symphony Society’s annual gala benefit for the Virginia Symphony, to take place the evening of April 14th (beginning at 5:30 p.m.)  at the Two Rivers Country Club in Governor’s Land in Williamsburg. This year’s gala will recognize the contributions of the 2019 Gala Honoree, Patrick McDermott, and Honorary Chairs, Bob and Diane Petterson.

Actress and Yorktown native, Tiffany Haas, famous for her role as Glinda in the Broadway show Wicked, will perform Broadway tunes and old favorites during the dinner. Tiffany will be accompanied by pianist Bart Keubler. Local high school music students will provide live music during the cocktail hour. Live auction items for the Broadway-themed event will include a trip to New York City with tickets to Broadway shows, a wine-tasting experience, and a voice lesson with Tiffany Haas.

Proceeds from past galas have totaled over $200,000 that have gone directly toward providing VSO led musical experiences in our region – including local concert programming and new music education programs led by professional VSO musicians in our schools.

Always a fun-filled and elegant evening – complete with fine dining and live music – the annual gala has become a much anticipated spring event.
