Symphony Seaside Swing



For the event that’s the most summer fun on the South Coast!

JUNE 6, 2020

Dear Symphony Friend,

We invite you to be an “early supporter” of this year’s Symphony Seaside Swing. By supporting the event now, we will be able to recognize your generosity by listing you on the event invitation that will be going out in the spring. We are so excited about the theme for this year’s Symphony Seaside Swing as we visit the Austrian mountains with the Sound of Music!

Yes, that’s right: along with a special evening with friends enjoying cocktails, a delicious raw bar, tasty appetizers, and a wonderful dinner, we will entertain you with a show featuring the beloved songs of Maria and the Von Trapp family. After the show, the Seaside Swing Band will play for your listening and dancing pleasure. All the while, a fabulous silent auction will offer you a host of fun and unique items and experiences.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support our concert series and educational programs. Under the leadership of Maestro Yaniv Dinur, the NBSO is making its mark with innovative programming and a new level of artistic excellence. Our educational programs, with the direction of Education Director Terry Wolkowicz, serve 8,000 children annually including all second and third-graders in New Bedford, receiving national attention along the way. You can learn more about these programs and see an inspiring video on the Learning in Concert page at

The only way we can reach our goal is to fill the tent with wonderful people like you who believe in what the NBSO is doing for our community. We hope you can help us!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us or the NBSO office at (508) 999-6276 if you have any questions, and please respond by March 27 to be listed as an event supporter in the official Seaside Swing invitation. Thank you!!

A special thank you to everyone who supported the Seaside Swing through ticket purchases, silent auction bids, and generous donations. You were instrumental (pun intended!) in making this event a huge success!

Thank you to our wonderful Seaside Swing Committee and a special thank you to Barbara Gee for her creative ideas and designs for Seaside Swing The Beatles, photographer Richard Van Inwegen for volunteering to capture the essence of the evening for us, the Board of Governors and Staff of the Kittansett Club, and all of our silent auction donors.

Proceeds support the NBSO educational programs and concert series.

Your donations make possible our innovative educational programs.

Our educational programs serve over 25,000 children a year, and we are recognized nationally for our innovative approach and high impact. We all know of the documented benefits of children learning music, and we firmly believe that by introducing classical music to a new generation of students through our programs, we are helping them to make critical connections between music and their everyday lives, making their NBSO experience enriching on multiple levels.
