Glitz & Glamour
An Afternoon Tea to support Talented Young Musicians
Currently in the midst of its 26th season, The Long Bay Symphony mission is to provide top-quality musical performances and programs that entertain, educate and enhance the region’s cultural environment.
Organized in 1988, The Long Bay Symphony Guild supports the Symphony and its outreach programs by raising funds, soliciting memberships and staffing events. The Glitz & Glamour Tea held on Sunday at Pawleys Plantation was one of the Guild’s fundraising endeavors; the event raised approximately $5,000 for The Long Bay Symphony Youth Orchestra.
Founded in 1990, the Youth Orchestra serves to further the music education, talent development and social experiences of the area’s most talented young musicians, ages 9 through 22. It rewards the hard work, dedication and discipline necessary to perform in a symphony orchestra by providing professional instruction, leadership and performing opportunities for those accepted into membership. The Orchestra builds on and enhances the music education programs in the Georgetown and Horry school systems and helps take the students to a higher level of excellence in talent development, musicianship and repertoire.
