Summer Gala Concert 2021

We kicked off the summer season with a beautiful outdoor concert gala at Stonington Vineyards and we couldn’t imagine it being any better!  Music Director & Conductor, Toshiyuki Shimada led 40 ECSO musicians in works by several composers including Leonard Bernstein, John Williams, and Edward Elgar. Local favorite and renowned soprano, Sarah Yanovitch Vitale, swooned the crowd with her amazing voice on select pieces.

The evening couldn’t have been possible without the support and contributions made by our sponsors and donors. Thanks again to Chelsea Groton Bank, Dominion Energy, Norwich Ophthalmology Group, Waller, Smith & Palmer P.C., and WhaleRock Point Partners, LLC! We were able to exceed our goal of over $50,000 with our gala and appreciate all who were able to participate in our silent auction. The ECSO is thankful to over 400 people who were able to attend and we look forward to having your continued support and presence as we gather in new and innovative ways this summer!
