This Friday Night - "Simsbury Takes Manhattan" Comedy and Music!

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).
