This year’s annual An Evening Under the Stars Gala is set for Saturday, Sept. 29th beginning at 6:00 p.m. This event, our sixth annual benefit gala, will again be held at Palazzo di Migianella in El Dorado Hills, the elegant Italian vineyard estate of our board Vice President Marie Mitchell. The evening features a gourmet dinner, silent and live auctions, performances by symphony musicians and a special concert by celebrity guest artist tenor Doug LaBrecque. Dave Bender, CBS Sacramento’s Emmy award winning meteorologist and auctioneer extraordinaire, returns as master of ceremonies.
Mr. LaBrecque, one of the most prolific concert performers of his generation, has been a soloist with some of the world’s finest symphony orchestras. His clear tenor thrilled theater audiences as The Phantom and Raoul in the Harold Prince production of The Phantom of the Opera. In addition, he starred on Broadway as Ravenal in the Prince revival of Showboat, a role he also performed in Canada and Chicago. He made his Carnegie Hall debut as a soloist with the New York Pops, and the same season debuted with The Boston Pops. The Kansas City Star called his “Music of the Night” performance “hypnotic,” noting it “brought the crowd to its feet.”
Tickets to the Gala are $300 per person, and attire is black tie optional. Valet parking will be provided. Premium seating and sponsorships are available.
By attending the gala, you will be supporting our efforts to provide music programs for youths and underserved families and to invite top-tier guest artists to each concert. The funds help us offer our popular low- and no-cost family concert with an instrument petting zoo and free outdoor concerts as well as expand our program to bring music into the schools.
