Thank you, PATCH: Kristin and Sarah, for helping us to get out the word about our fabulous symphony. Maestro Suttle has a magic baton in bringing out the best performances from our professional musicians. Each concert promises a musical surprise, which our audience has come to happily anticipate. Join us and surround yourself with the rich sounds of a live orchestra. Rita May
