We are so excited to announce our return to one of our new favorite venues to perform outside – Stonington Vineyards! Join us for our Gala, safely distanced and outdoors, re-imagined as a relaxed summer concert with Toshi and ECSO musicians.

The concert will feature over 40 ECSO musicians, led by Music Director & Conductor, Toshiyuki Shimada. The orchestra will perform works by Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, Edward Elgar, and more, in addition to special selections performed by soprano, Sarah Yanovitch Vitale.

Woodfellas Pizza & Wings will be on site offering food for purchase and attendees may also bring their own food. It is recommended to bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and a light jacket as it may get cooler towards the end of the evening. Stonington Vineyards wine will be available for purchase inside the winery and accordingly, no outside alcohol may be brought to the event. Masks must be worn inside to purchase wine, but no masks will be required when sitting outside.

The Gala is generously sponsored by Chelsea Groton Bank, Dominion Energy, Norwich Ophthalmology Group, PC, Waller, Smith & Palmer, PC, and WhaleRock Point Partners, LLC.

There will be a silent auction once more, accessible from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Register now so you can place your bids beginning June 11 on our GiveSmart website below. Items range from international trips to local experiences, with a wide variety of price points of donated items.
