VSSGW presents $55,000 check to Virginia Symphony Orchestra

The Virginia Symphony Orchestra (VSO) opened its Williamsburg concert season with a free performance at Lake Matoaka amphitheater, on the campus of the College of William and Mary. Under the baton of the symphony's resident conductor, Benjamin Rous, the orchestra performed a variety of classical and contemporary music intended to give the audience a preview of selections that the Symphony will be performing during its 2016-2017 season.

Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg president Barbara Vollmer welcomed the orchestra and, together with longtime supporter and VSSGW founder Bert Aaron, presented VSO Chair Patrick McDermott with a check for $55,000. The funds were proceeds from the 2016 VSSGW Annual Gala held earlier this year.

Information about the VSSGW, the benefits of membership, and its schedule of events can be found on the VSSGW's web site www.vssgw.com .
