Join us in celebrating the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra and in honoring Charlie and Lynn Frank

Charlie and Lynn Frank have been improving the quality of life in the Hudson River Valley since moving to Walden in 1985. Charlie has spent 37 years in the information technology industry, mostly with IBM where he is Solutions & Business Development Leader within IBM’s Global Alliance. He devoted countless hours to educational causes and now serves as Board Chair of Mount Saint Mary College (MSMC), which hosts the GNSO in wonderful fashion. He is an accomplished photographer and has given us excellent shots of the GNSO conductor and musicians. Charlie has also served in many community positions in Walden, including Village Mayor.

After raising seven children and founding the Beautification Committee in Walden, Lynn returned to the workforce at MSMC in 2007 and now serves as its Director of Major Gifts. She has been intimately involved with the Medici Program, which enables business students to work with not-for-profit boards, a program in which the GNSO has enthusiastically participated since its inception.

Proceeds from the Brunch will enable the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra to continue to expand the scope and frequency of its programming, as it has done in the past.

The Benefit Committee is now in formation. Members participate with a tax-deductible contribution of:
Conductor Level: $1,000/per person or more
Associate Conductor Level: $ 500/per person
Concertmaster Level: $ 250/per person
