The music moaned with the passing of Elizabeth Mushinsky Mitchell. A founding director of the Wallingford Symphony, Liz had been an active member since the symphony's inception, with multiple terms as president.
She was instrumental in establishing its children's concert series, which for three decades has given a taste of classical music to 1,400 grade-school children each year. She helped create such events as the symphony's Johann Strauss Ball and big-band dinners, and assisted in extending the symphony's reach through concerts staged in several neighboring towns. Liz was a vital spark within the Wallingford Symphony that kept us all on message, offering live, quality music.
In her honor, the Symphony Board of Directors is dedicating the March concert, Csardas!An Afternoon in Vienna and Budapest!, to her and is establishing a permanent recognition in the Elizabeth Mushinsky Mitchell Concertmaster Chair.
