The Simsbury Friends for Music is sponsoring an open-to-the-public fundraiser to benefit the Henry James Memorial School orchestra program. "Simsbury Takes Manhattan" will start at 6:00 p.m. on March 28 in the school’s cafeteria. The evening will feature live music, pizza and dessert, a silent auction and a great night of comedy by SeaTea Improv, Connecticut’s premiere sketch comedy troupe.
The fundraiser will benefit the 7th and 8th grade orchestras and help underwrite a trip to the New York City Orchestra Festival and provide scholarship monies. Tickets for this great event are still available and can be bought at the door. Cost is $20 per adult and $15 per student, but if the purchaser uses the password “Intonation,” $5.00 will be taken off each ticket. Cash or a check made out to Simsbury Friends for Music accepted. Children under age 4 are free.
In addition to the music and comedy, the planning committee
has organized a fantastic silent auction.
Items range from mani/pedis to personal training sessions and include meals
at local restaurants, rounds of golf, fly fishing and music lessons, scarves
and jewelry, spa days, wine, a Flamig Farm hayride, bowling, and much more! (Cash or check accepted for auction items).
