I have worked with the Friends of the Annapolis Symphony for the past 2 years on their Read Between the Wines fundraiser. This is an event the Board Members developed and organized through Beth Dolezal to give every individual in the community a personal and up close experience with writers. The authors are given an opportunity to introduce themselves to a new audience and expand their following. This is a "thinking out of the box" event to benefit the entire community not just the Symphony supporters. Which proves to me, that FASO works to intergrate all aspects of the Arts Community in their efforts. I have found FASO memebers to be dedicated to sustaining and expanding the wonders and educational benefits the Annapolis Symphony offers to the this East Coast Region, Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland.
