A special note from Executive Director, Doug Donato:
We were so thrilled to launch WSO's brand new Continuo Club on Sunday June 4th, 2023.
For some time we have been wishing to acknowledge and celebrate our most generous sponsors and patrons with a quarterly social gathering that is pure pleasure - meeting and mingling of like-minded people who are equally aligned in thought, words and deeds - to our core mission that music, music education and shared cultural experiences are essential for humanity.
While we have many tiers of supporters, starting with the most pivotal of all - our
wonderful patrons who sign up and enjoy are concerts, our generous Corporate & Organization Season & Concert Sponsors, our Program Book Advertisers, the individuals and organizations who think of us at the end of the year for our Annual Fund Drive, or the April Give Local... and finally, a good many of you who are all of the above! Know that we are in the process of crafting a more expansive program which honors the corresponding scale of generosity for our range of generous patrons and sponsors.
Meanwhile, the launch of the Continuo Club has been a wonderful start.
Membership to WSO’s Continuo Club is automatically offered to any supporter making a $500 minimum donation per year and thus includes an invitation to each of our Quarterly Continuo Club complimentary Meet & Greets. New members are always welcome at any time [by simply making a donation via our website's Donate Button, and, yes please, do feel free to invite others to participate, especially those who share our vision and might also enjoy being part of the WSO’s Continuo Club.
Our Launch Event was Sunday, June 4th, 2023.
We were thrilled that Carole Peck of Good News Restaurant & Bar of Woodbury, CT offered to be our Hospitality partner, sponsor and host for our launch Quarterly event and it is of no surprise ... that the atmosphere, buffet of hors d'oeuvres and the complimentary wine, bubbly and /or glass of sparkling water for each Continuo Club member as they arrived... was just a wonderful kick off to a beautiful afternoon. Thank you Carole!
The turnout was fabulous for the launch party at Good News..
