... for your support

The Juneau Symphony would like to thank the following businesses and individuals for their assistance with our June 22 Symphony Solstice pops concert. The evening of dancing and music was a complete success, due in large part to these folks, and we want them to know their efforts were very much appreciated.

First, we thank Alaska Communications Systems for its sponsorship of the Symphony Solstice program. Without ACS's generosity, we simply could not present this additional concert to the community of Juneau. We also thank the Thunder Mountain Big Band for adding its wonderful dance music to the evening, as well as artistic director Galen Tromble and administrative director Ron Maas for their organizational efforts. Thanks to Rie Munoz, who once again allowed us to use her lovely and eye-catching print "The Conductor," and to the Juneau Elks Club and Jeff Grant for lending their tables for seating alongside the dance floor. Additional thanks to Toby Clark and his crew of Mike Matthews, Jake Reed and Sarah Cohen, and to the staff of Centennial Hall for their technical expertise.

We are grateful to celebrity waiters Mayor Sally Smith, Sen. Kim Elton and Mary Lou Elton, Rep. Bill Hudson and Lucy Hudson, Rep. Beth Kerttula and Assembly member Jim Powell, and Rear Adm. Jim Underwood of the U.S. Coast Guard for keeping our table patrons happy and full of apple cider. Special thanks to the following behind-the-scenes volunteers: Doreen Hogins, Jane MacKinnon, Laverne Bruce, Mary Lou Meiners, Alice Rarig, Jesse Herold, Dan Beason, Marjorie Quisenberry, Donna Mayfield, Tom Schriver, Helen Sayer, Phil and Karen Greeney, and Kate McKelvey.

Finally, we want to thank the board of directors of the Juneau Symphony. These people form an incredible board that manages to have fun while getting the work done, and the Symphony Solstice concert displayed each board member's talents admirably. The Juneau Symphony wouldn't be what it is today without the efforts of Susan Burke, Lucy Merrell, Alison Browne, Mary Anne Dlugosch, Mary Borthwick, Rick Houck, Bob King, Judy G. Knight, Sioux Plummer, Rich Ritter, Greg Williams and Barbara Wilmot. Thank you for all you do to promote symphonic music in Alaska's Capital City.

Look for our 2002-03 season announcement in July, as we celebrate the Juneau Symphony's 40th anniversary.

See you at the Symphony!
