Spotlight on the hill – Asia America Symphony Guild
In the company of the Consul General of Japan and hosted by Carolyn Elliott at her seaside Tuscan residence, the Asia America Symphony Guild put on their annual holiday fundraising boutique. A fashion show was presented by Renko Original Fashions. It was followed by a performance by symphony director David Benoit and his students, including a string quartet ensemble, a jazz quartet and then a solo performance by Benoit himself on the piano serenaded the captive audience. Over a dozen vendors sold one-of-a-kind holiday items and the Elliott home was decorated in a stunning, traditional christmas style. Proceeds will benefit AAYS programs.
