The Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra League spring fundraising dinner concert ‘A Broadway Bash’, with Tiffany Haas of Wicked fame had a very successful evening at the Two Rivers Country Club on April 1, 2017. A grand total of $35,000 was raised to benefit the Williamsburg Symphony Orchestra (WSO) in the coming year.

Tiffany gave a terrific performance which included a broad range of songs highlighted with narrative about her career. The WSO League Fundraising Committee was headed by Doug Wood with Cecie Adolphi, Marie Knuettel, Margene Hartsough, Marie Mamikonian, and Paul Try, League President, playing key roles in planning the event.

Rick Overy of Compass Wealth Strategies, the auctioneer for the live auction and paddle raise, encouraged a generous response from the attendees which will benefit the WSO concerts and educational outreach programs, many of which reach over 7,000 children each year. Nearly 170 attendees were treated to a beautiful sunset on the James as they dined on a spectacular dinner prepared by Chef Rizzo. Tiffany was treated to a standing ovation at the conclusion of her concert as an appreciation of her great talent and outstanding performance!
