Conway Symphony Orchestra Guild hosts ‘Jazz It Up’ fundraising event

CONWAY — The Conway Symphony Orchestra Guild will host “Jazz It Up” from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8, at Reynold’s Performance Hall on the UCA campus, 223 Beatrice Powell Dr. The festive event will be held on the stage and will feature delicious heavy hors d’oeuvres, a wine and beer bar, great jazz, and both a live and a silent auction.

Tickets cost $75 per person and only 150 will be sold. “We are working hard to make this a special event for our guests,” said Christine Mayo, president of the CSO Guild. “The live and silent auctions will feature numerous unique items and we’re excited to raise funds for the Conway Symphony Orchestra and their educational programs. We have a gem in this town. CSO is a Central Arkansas treasure!”

Guild Members Carrie Grantham and Liz Taylor-McMullen are decorating for “Jazz It Up” and plan to make it the season’s most memorable event. As part of the visual entertainment for the evening, well-known artists Suzann Waggoner and Sheila Parsons will create artwork to be sold as auction items.
