  • Leslee did a fabulous job in putting together an exquisite wine tasting event for our Maestro’s Circle. These top donors expect the highest level of sophistication from the Minnesota Orchestra and Leslee delivered. Not only did she speak eloquently about the wines served, but she arranged for fantastic cheese pairings and even etched wine glasses with our logo. It was a memorable event and I would proudly work with Leslee any time. Scott Mays, Advancement Officer
