Those who know Myra, and that is many, are well-aware that arts and culture and in particular, symphonic music is a cause she holds dear. For many years now Myra has supported the Fort Collins Symphony in many ways—as a board member, as hostess to Symphony soirees in her home, through direct financial support and even as a greeter at concerts. When it comes to supporting the Symphony Myra is simply indefatigable and the Symphony and the community are better off for her many efforts. This season, among other things, she is sponsoring the Symphony’s performance of Handel’s Messiah.
When Myra is not strategizing on how to raise funds for the Symphony she keeps busy raising mountain pleasure horses, including Kentucky Mountain Saddle and Rocky Mountain Horses at her ranch outside of Fort Collins (be sure to check out her ad in this year’s Symphony program book!). She also just came out of retirement to practice law again.
Finally, Myra just fully endowed the William B. Runyan Principal Bass Trombone Chair to honor her husband who has played with the Fort Collins Symphony for 39 years.
Myra, thank you—for everything!
