Let’s head for the lake! The sun’s out, it’s a robin’s-eggshell-blue sky, and the wind’s from the south! Join your WMS Board of Directors for a nautically-themed night out benefiting the concerts and youth education offerings of the West Michigan Symphony. The evening includes a hosted bar, dinner, dessert, live music, and bidding on great experiential items at our silent auction.
