Benefit Concert

Nov 9, 2013 – 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a special fundraising concert to benefit our Collections. A unique event, it will feature Hope Carlson, our Chief Development Officer who is also a classically-trained vocalist, as well as two acclaimed professional artists: mandolin player, Chris Acquavella, and guitarist, Eric Foster. In the exquisite acoustical setting of the intimate St. Francis Chapel, they will perform some old favorites and some rare melodies by composers such as Léo Delibes, Manuel de Falla, Gabriel Fauré, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Heitor Villa-Lobos. Each musical piece will be paired with a unique artifact from the Collections. Audience members will not only hear beautiful songs in English, French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese, but they will also see – up close and without casework – these special objects. The concert will be followed by a reception with the artists.

We hope you will join us for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser. Please mark your calendars and bring your checkbooks for an afternoon of fun and beauty supporting a great cause! Tickets are $50 each.
