Shamrocks and Champagne in Alexandria

SOLA gala benefits ASO

The Symphony League of Alexandria held its 30th annual ball and auction March 18 at the Westin Alexandria Hotel. With a theme of Shamrocks and Champagne, the ball proceeds will benefit the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra.

“Final numbers are not yet in but we typically donate around $50,000 to the ASO from the gala,” said SOLA gala chair Phyllis Sintay.

The ASO season finale will take place May 20 at the Rachel M. Schlesinger Center on the Alexandria campus of Northern Virginia Community College. Emil de Cou will be guest conductor and Marlisa Woods is the featured violin soloist. For more information, call 703-548-0885 or visit
