Dear Festival Friends,
Thank you for joining us at our Spring Benefit Concert and Silent Auction last week!
The Spring Benefit Concert titled “An Evening of Romance” was held virtually on Saturday, April 10th and the Silent Auction ended on Sunday, April 11th.
The Silent Auction featured 60 items, including an overnight stay at Geneva On The Lake, a VIP wine tasting at a local winery, a Cessna flight over the Finger Lakes, sailing lessons, and more.
Many thanks to local businesses and friends of the Festival for donating so many wonderful items for the auction. This year’s fundraising would not have been possible without your support!
Viewers across the country joined us virtually on April 10th for a night of wonderful music. Violinists Geoffrey Herd and Clara Lyon, cellists Hannah Collins and Clive Greensmith, and pianist Esther Park captivated us as they performed works by Clara Schumann, Amy Beach, Chen Yi, Florence Price, Robert Schumann, Igor Stravinsky, and Roger Tollroth.
Through the auction, concert ticket sales, and donations, the Spring Benefit raised a record amount this year:
These funds will be used to support the wonderful artists who will be joining us in Geneva for our 2021 Season, “First Decade Retrospective” beginning on May 20th, 2021.
Our 2021 Season concerts and ticket purchase information will be officially announced in next week’s newsletter. We are also working to get all the details posted on our website as soon as possible. In the meantime, please subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for live updates on the upcoming season!
