WILLIAMSBURG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA LEAGUE ENCORE AFFAIR #9 ENDS 2016-17 SEASON WITH A WITTY PERFORMANCE BY “MARK TWAIN”

A unique and imaginative Kingsmill home was the surprise venue provided by Liz Moore & Associates for a delightful Encore Affair fundraiser on May 11 "Mark Twain & the Magnificent Mystery House". Actor Ryan Clemens, a Twain descendant attired as the 70-year-old humorist, entertained the 60 guests with droll stories and witty comments as well as fielded impromptu questions about his remarkable life. Before Ryan Clemens was introduced by Tim Parker, Listing Realtor with Liz Moore & Associates, guests were treated to a delicious wine buffet and tours of the house.

Encore Affairs have proved to be popular fundraisers with a diverse series of parties and special events that benefit the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra. Originated as the Williamsburg Symphonia in 1984 the Williamsburg Symphony is now enjoying its 33rd year and 13th season with the dynamic Janna Hymes as Music Director.

Plans are underway for the 11th Encore Affairs 2017-18 season and will be announced mid-summer. For further information about how you can participate in the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra League go to www.williamsburgsymphony.org/support/League
