Virtual Thursday – August 20

Please join us for the finale evening of the Virtual Thursday series, as we embrace an Italian flair for our fundraising gala – Cabaret & Cabernet: A Celebration of Songs, Sweets & Sharing.

This final Virtual Thursday episode will feature vocal music with Erin Bryan, soprano; Emily Fons; mezzo-soprano; Scott Ramsay, tenor; and director-designate Sam Handley, bass-baritone. All will be accompanied by Scott Gendel on the piano. (Once we finish the video, we’ll add it to this page, so it will be visible starting on August 20 at 7 p.m., and will remain up through the end of September.)

We invite you to prepare a dessert and/or a drink, get comfortable, and enjoy! Join us for a Meet-the-Artists Reception following the Virtual Thursday video via the magic of Zoom. The event is free, but pre-registration is required. Click here to register.
