Symphony Ambassadors Celebrate the Close of the Season
Palm Beach, Fla. (April 13, 2016) – The Ladies Guild of the Palm Beach Symphony hosted its 10th annual Ladies Tea at the legendary Leopard Lounge in the Chesterfield Palm Beach hotel on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. The yearly celebration brought together over 60 ambassadors and guests of the Palm Beach Symphony for an afternoon of friendship and fun over a traditional high tea service.
The reception began with a chance auction that included 30 donated items with proceeds benefitting the educational outreach programs of the Palm Beach Symphony. Then the ladies enjoyed the renowned afternoon tea at the Chesterfield, which features a selection of irresistibly tempting treats, along with music by Wayne Hosford. The event ended in a fun sing-along of some classic favorites by all the ladies.
The event was chaired by Marietta Muiña McNulty and Sieglinde Wikstrom, who thanked guests for their participation and support. They also paid tribute to the late Dr. Ray E. Robinson, the former music and artistic director of the Palm Beach Symphony. The annual tea is held at the end of each season in honor of the late Dora Bak, a Symphony Diamond Benefactor. Long-time Symphony supporter, Doris Hastings, served as this year’s honorary chair.
“We always look forward to coming together and connecting at this wonderful event,” said Marietta Muiña McNulty. “We are celebrating an amazing season of growth and expansion for the Symphony. This provides us with even more opportunities to inspire our community and schools with classical music and world-class musicians through our outreach programs.”
