"We had a great time. Good food, good people to talk with, met new friends"

“Silver and Gold SoirĂ©e, Silent Auction and Raffle” was a wonderful success with over $5000 raised to help the Orchestra of Southern Utah.  Thanks to the musicians who provided live music and to those who donated items, tickets, and services.  Special thanks to the directors: Ariel Wolter Rhoades and Suzanne Tegland.

The OSU musicians enjoyed having a chance to visit with our orchestra supporters who help us keep the music live and accessible for southern Utah.  
OSU Chorale Director Jackie Riddle-Jackson and Messiah Chorale member Susan Allman check silent auction bids.

OSU Violist Kaycee Eckhardt and OSU Business Liason Blate Minkler supervised the raffle items.

We enjoyed greeting old friends and meeting new OSU supporters.  Live music throughout the evening, plus silent auction, raffle, and refreshments.

OSU musicians have formed West Winds Flute Trio: Adrienne Read, Ariel Wolter Rhoades, and Bradley Gregory.
