2016 Williamsburg Consort Symphonic Band Festival

September 18 - September 23

Thanks to all of the Williamsburg Consort Musicians and WC Guests. Darrell and I have such wonderful memories of this 15th and last year. These include:

  • Sally Pants' Day
  • So many hugs and wonderful messages.
  • The gorgeous roses, that made the trip home and bloomed for another week.
  • The Visa Gift Card...we plan to buy a WC Momento.

Everything was just perfect and we really appreciate all of your efforts.

Thank you, Williamsburg for your support of the Consort
for the last 15 years!
