Jim Galloway

The Galloway Memorial Fund

Join us for a touching tribute to our friend and patron James Galloway at An Evening to Remember on May 5th, 2024. Jim was a light to all who knew him, and he sadly passed away in November, 2023. As we gather in the serene setting of the Memorial Garden and Hudson Hall at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in McLean, we’ll celebrate Jim’s life with a concert and picnic. Jim was a valued member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church and a former submariner stationed in Naples, Italy, where he developed a deep appreciation for opera. At home in Virginia, he made the brave decision to host SOT’s out of town singers, and got much more love and joy than he ever thought possible! The singers who loved him back will be singing, along with other SOT favorites, accompanied by our own Maestra, Dr. Lisa Bloy.

This event marks the inauguration of the Galloway Memorial Fund, established to support artists from outside the DC area who share their talents with us. Join us on May 5th, 2024, from 5-7:30 PM for a picnic and concert that promises to be a moving tribute to Jim’s legacy. While the concert is free, we welcome donations to the Galloway Memorial Fund to continue celebrating the classical arts in Jim’s honor.

Please note: Space is limited, so reserve your spot TODAY by clicking on the tickets bar.

We look forward to sharing this evening of remembrance and music with you, honoring a remarkable man who touched the hearts of many with his personal warmth and passion for supporting the arts.
