One Night, Many Voices

Saturday, March 17 | 7:30 PM

$50/person includes drinks & dessert. Very limited seating.

Proceeds from the evening benefit our "Growing Young Artists" program for migrant students.

Hosts Shirley Sutton & Dick Shaw, Pat & Larry Sharp, Kim Redlin & Phillip Crump, and Mary Terzino & Gregg Potter invite you to join them for this very special evening of music.

Our lobby becomes a club setting for five rising stars who will treat you to an evening of most-loved opera and Broadway melodies. Enjoy an open bar and luscious desserts from Borrowed Time, and settle in at a cocktail table.

Sarah Bauer, Ryan Bradford, Gillian Cotter, John Riesen, and accompanist Neill Campbell fill the lobby with soaring songs from Verdi and Mozart to Sondheim and Bernstein. We'll close out this extraordinary St. Patrick's Day celebration with a rendition of "Oh Danny Boy" that we promise you will long remember!

Our host couples are passionate about the SCA's Growing Young Artists program which gives K-8th-grade migrant students important creative educational opportunities. They hope you will join them to support Growing Young Artists and make a difference for these too often forgotten young people in our community.
