Fremont Symphony holds 50th anniversary gala
Submitted By Megan Morrow
The Fremont Symphony Orchestra (FSO) is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a glittering evening of ÒDeco and Diamonds.Ó This benefit for the FSO golden anniversary season honors Fremont Bank for its 50 years of service in the community and the Fremont Bank Foundation for their philanthropy and support of the arts. The event will kick off with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a plated dinner, live auction, and eclectic entertainment. Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski will be Master of Ceremonies for the Art Deco-themed evening.
Performing at the gala will be organizations supported by the Fremont Bank Foundation including: Diablo Ballet, Music at the Mission, Music for Minors II, Newark Symphonic Winds, and StarStruck Theatre. Entertainment highlights range from Never Never Land performed by children of StarStruck Theatre, to world-class cellist Michael Graham and pianist Aileen Chanco from Music at the Mission. An exciting Saxophone Quartet from the Newark Symphonic Winds and an award-winning pianist from FSOÕs Young Artist Competition will also perform for guests.
The Fremont SymphonyÕs successful October concert, ÒWorld Tour: Unity,Ó celebrated the diversity and unity of Fremont and the unifying nature of music. In that same spirit, the brief entertainment at the Gala celebrates the amazing range of performing arts in our community.
ÒThis evening will prove to be one of the most exciting of the year,Ó said Lee Foster, Executive Director of the Fremont Symphony. ÒNot only will the evening be gorgeous with its Art Deco theme and decorations, but the entertainment honoring the Fremont Bank Foundation will be thrilling. I hope everyone will join us for this festive evening honoring the 50th Anniversary of two great institutions, the Fremont Symphony Orchestra and Fremont Bank. ItÕs a not-to-be-missed one time event!Ó
All proceeds from the event will benefit the Fremont Symphony Orchestra, a nonprofit organization.
