RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- The Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra is inviting the public to come get down -- which may seem like an an oxymoron, considering that it's a professional symphony orchestra -- at its Spring Fling Fundraiser Dinner-Dance on on Saturday, March 19.

Maestro Jerry Steichen and talented musician friends will bring a dance beat to the festivities. The evening will start with festive bubbly, wine and hors d’oeuvres, and dinner-by-the-bite -- to allow for more socializing and dancing -- by Chef Raffaele Gallo of Gallo Ristorante.

There will also be a musically-themed auction and raffle items, presented by emcee and Emmy Award-winning journalist and author Ira Joe Fisher, and dancing to live world-class music.

A few raffle items include

  • a week in Taos, New Mexico, at the home of Barbara Nevis, owner of Southwest Cafe;
  • a catered dinner by Chef Raffaele Gallo;
  • a week at Steichen's ski condo in Red River, New Mexico; and
  • a guest-conductor opportunity with the RSO, with the "Golden Baton."

"Not only is this a night of fun, food and festivities, but it helps support the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra, a nonprofit professional arts organization with a 51-year history. The RSO is a cultural gem and helps make Ridgefield a sought-after destination and hometown."
