Symphony League Elects New Officers and Appoints Two to Board

Item #: BB14 Item:  Guest Conductor Privileges Donor:  Sulphur Springs Symphony League Description:   Does your bucket list include conducting a full, professional orchestra?  Or maybe you have a young family member that loves music.  Or maybe you are looking for the perfect gift for the person who has everything.  Whatever your reason, this unique opportunity to conduct the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra for a song during the Independence Day Celebration concert to be held on Saturday, July 2, 2016 in downtown Sulphur Springs.  Guest conductor will practice with the orchestra in the afternoon for about 30 minutes (schedule will be coordinated closer to the date) and then direct a song during the concert that evening.

Sharla Campbell and Adam Whitson were appointed to the Sulphur Springs Symphony League Board of Directors during the first meeting of the League in 2016.  Both Campbell and Whitson volunteered with the Symphony League during the annual auction.  New officers for 2016 are President Linda Galligher, Vice President Maleta Reynolds, Treasurer Carol Bridges, and Secretary Kayla Price.

The Symphony League is a non-profit organization that produces the annual Independence Day Celebration on Celebration Plaza, the annual Children’s Concert for all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in Hopkins County, sponsors and coordinates the Dallas Opera2Go performance at the SS Middle School, offers an annual scholarship to a SSHS graduating senior, and provides various other forms of support for the SSISD music program.  The Sulphur Springs Symphony League is the volunteer organization that operates the Northeast Texas Symphony Orchestra, which is a group of professional musicians.

This year marks the 25th year of the Symphony, the Independence Day Celebration, and the annual auction.
