The SYMPHONIA to Honor Six Local Ladies of Philanthropy When “A Symphony of Voices” Takes Place March 28

In keeping with The SYMPHONIA’s theme this season of celebrating women in the arts, South Florida’s world-class chamber orchestra will honor six Palm Beach County women who have made a major difference in local philanthropy. 

“A Symphony of Voices: A Celebration of Women in Philanthropy” will take place on Saturday, March 28 and showcase a powerful performance by world-renowned pianist Marika Bournaki and an appearance by composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, the first woman to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music. 

“These honorees are some of  Palm Beach County’s most influential women in philanthropy – women who embody the same spirit as the suffragettes who fought for the vote 100 years ago — seeking to empower the powerless and give a voice to the voiceless,” said Annabel Russell, Executive Director, The SYMPHONIA.

The “female-focused” event will honor Kathy Adkins, President, Impact 100; Sally Berenzweig, Chief Development Officer & Co-Founder, KidSafe Foundation; Nicolette Goldfarb, Board Member, Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County; Lisa McDulin, Director of Advancement, Place of Hope; Judi Schuman, Financial Resource Development Chair, Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County; and Stephanie Tunis, Public Affairs Chair, Junior League of Boca Raton.

Celebrating the centennial of the 19th Amendment during its 2019-2020 season, The SYMPHONIA has put women – conductors, soloists and composers – at the center of each performance of its Connoisseur Concert Series. This special celebration of exceptional women and organizations that have directly touched the life of The SYMPHONIA is the culmination of the orchestra’s 2019-2020 season.
