President’s Message

Welcome to SOLA’s 2015 – 2016 year.

We look forward to many exciting events this year.  SOLA and the ASO have planned a year of top notch activities and musical performances.  As always, SOLA will provide to the ASO the same quality of service that we’ve been giving for almost 35 years. 

This directory contains the information you need to enjoy your membership and give you opportunities to volunteer your services to SOLA and the ASO.  Our planned fundraising efforts this year include the annual peanut sales, SOLA Uncorked VI, a concert by Thomas Pandolfi, and the 29th Symphony Ball.  The 40th Mary Graham Lasley Scholarship Competition for young musicians will be held on March 6, 2016.  This is our main educational event, and we want to make this anniversary year very special.  Please plan to attend and enjoy the performances by the next generation of musical talent. 

There will be many opportunities for you to participate throughout the year.  Please check the date, time, and place for our general membership meetings.  We will provide entertainment at these meetings and look forward to seeing you.   Please join us and bring a guest or prospective member.

Let’s continue to increase our SOLA membership and to make the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra known within the community through involvement in successful fundraising activities.   Please share any ideas you have to improve our service to the community and the ASO.  We need all of you to bring your time and talents to SOLA.

I look forward to working with all of you,

Phyllis Sintay
