Many thanks to our outgoing president, Susan Thurber. Susan started playing viola with the orchestra in 2005, joined the orchestra committee in 2006, and has served as President since 2015. Susan has been instrumental in showing appreciation of our patrons, procuring advertisers for our programs, and leading the organization from being a sub-committee of the Wimberley Players to becoming a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Although she will be stepping down as President, Susan has assured all of us she will remain actively involved with the Starlight Symphony Orchestra.
