Summer Solstice Celebration

June 20, 2019, 5:30 PM

The Orchards at Rocking Horse Farm

3760 Apulia Rd., Jamesville, NY


Join us in the gorgeous event barn at The Orchards at Rocking Horse Farm  for an evening of music by the Symphoria String Quartet, a delicious farm-to-table dinner by Chef Luke Szabo of Scratch Farmhouse Catering featuring local and seasonal ingredients, and a fabulous silent auction all to benefit Symphoria!

This is the hottest ticket of the season! Come out and celebrate all that Central New York has to offer. Choose to sit with one of our conductors and partake in a special champagne toast or get a table and invite all of your friends! The weather will be fine, the food will be delicious, and the cause will make everything just a little bit sweeter!

Tickets are limited and will sell out! If you are unable to join us (which would be a shame), be sure to check out the silent auction! This year's auction will feature online bidding which can be accessed by anyone. Experiences like Biking with Larry Loh, Skiing with Christian Capocaccia, and Conducting Symphoria are just a few of the unique items that will be auctioned off this year! The auction will also feature premium trips and experiences, local restaurants, concert and lecture series, sports tickets, fine art and more!!

This is your opportunity to experience an evening of casual elegance while supporting symphonic music in Central New York! A portion of your ticket is considered a tax deductible donation to Symphoria.
