Team MONECO - Wallingford Symphony Orchestra

By actively participating in our local community, the team at MONECO Advisors has the opportunity to create meaningful and positive impacts in the places where we live, work, and raise our families. As a way to showcase our involvement and support for various organizations, we are shining a weekly spotlight on one group, aiming to raise awareness and recognition for the incredible work they do on a daily basis.

One of the groups that our team is involved with is the Wallingford Symphony Orchestra(WSO). The WSO provides professional quality orchestral music to the community and fosters musical abilities and appreciation among the youth as a not-for-profit organization. One of our Advisors serves as the current President of this organization!

The WSO annually presents four concerts during the season. The initial concert is generally held in October or early November followed by a Holiday concert in late November or early December. The concerts are presented in the Ann and George Colony Hall on the Choate Rosemary Hall campus in Wallingford, so if you’re looking for a great organization to support, consider supporting this one!

Now that the rate increase is in, how will this impact you in the course of your day to day finances? Read below to find out and we are here for you if you have any questions.
