Join Symphoria and the Greater CNY Medical Community as we honor and remember our colleague, mentor, teacher, supporter and friend, Dr. Frederick B. Parker. The “Fritz Gala” will include cocktails, dinner and a full orchestra concert in the stunning Grand Ballroom at the Hotel Syracuse. Cocktail or formal attire is requested.

Fritz was much loved for all of his time spent walking this earth and was one of Symphoria’s most avid supporters from the beginning of the orchestra’s existence in 2013. This gala will pay tribute to him and his legacy of support with donations made in his honor to Symphoria.
