Uncorking Spring a success!

Uncorking Spring was a huge hit this past weekend with about 100 people in attendance! Our Harp & Soul flute and harp duo provided pleasant music for the casual affair.

Participants enjoyed seven wines provided by Vermont Wine Merchants and served by Wunder Bar, fourteen incredible cheeses from a variety of Vermont cheese producers, cheesecake from Rhino Foods, truffles from Birnn Chocolates, and bread from Stewart's Bakery.

Gardener's Supply donated 10% of the sales back to the VSO. We extend our deepest thanks to these generous companies who made this event possible. We don't yet know the net profit from this delightful fundraiser, but all proceeds will benefit the VSO's SymphonyKids educational efforts in the Champlain Valley.

Keep reading for the upcoming schedule of SymphonyKids presentations across the state.
