Musical Feasts

What’s Happening with Musical Feasts?

Musical Feasts are parties with a purpose, offering attendance at very special events while helping the Guild fundraise for the Symphony. Musical Feasts, hosted by Guild members and local businesses, are open to anyone wishing to attend.

The “Season of Musical Feasts 2016-2017” booklet has been published, describing twenty-four exciting events, with something for everyone. To request a copy, please send an email to Betty Fox at

Interest has resulted in a large number of “sold out” events already. Below is a list of those feasts (through December 2016), still available for reservation at the time of this posting.
