At its recent annual meeting, the membership of the Virginia Symphony Society of Greater Williamsburg elected new officers, welcomed new Board members, and voted to shorten the organization's name to the Virginia Symphony Society. Barbara Vollmer, the Society's President for the past two years, was also recognized with the Member of the Year award for her "hands-on" leadership. The meeting, at Legacy Hall in New Town, featured an opening performance by Warhill High School students who have been the recipients during the past school year of coaching sessions provided by Virginia Symphony musicians. Information about these coaching sessions, and a demonstration, was presented by the orchestra's concertmaster, Vahn Armstrong. This coaching is part of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra's education and community engagement program which matches VSO musicians with local schools for coaching and mentorship.
