Music to the ears

Shreveport Symphony Guild prez Marilyn King was just home from the hospital when the doorbell rang one afternoon.

It was Shreveport Symphony Orchestra conductor Michael Butterman come to call.

He was at the market and ran into someone who told him King had been in the hospital and was home.

The visit stretched to an hour and a half.

When Butterman — who was expected at dinner at someone’s home — got up to leave, he suddenly remembered something.

"I have ice cream in the car!" he exclaimed.

King told the story and it drew quite a laugh while introducing Butterman Thursday at the Shreveport Symphony Guild May Day Celebration at University Club.

Thursday was also the 10th wedding anniversary of Butterman and his wife, violinist Jennifer Carsillo Butterman, who was also at the luncheon.

King was re-elected Guild president, with Elizabeth Keene going in as first vice president and Carol Zaffater, second vice president.

Also in the spotlight: Linda Pedro, who took home the Eleanor Colquitt Volunteer of the Year Award, and Millie Marquess, who received the Pauline Lewis Award, given to the volunteer whose work is considered vital for the growth of the Encore Shop.
