Wow! Our event, “Jazz Goes to the Opera,” was a success at the Brand Library! We started a little after the scheduled 2 p.m. start time, but patrons were able to admire the art gallery and purchase raffle tickets (we sold 6 pieces for $5 OR $1 per ticket) before we got the ball rolling.
We presented all attendees with more than an hour of feel-good opera/jazz music, and it seemed like everyone in the audience thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Some numbers received some standing ovations from members in the crowd, and there was a wealth of positive comments that came during and after the show.
Finally, the program was followed with the raffle drawing, mingling among members and non-members alike, as well as tasty finger foods and refreshments in the courtyard. (Who doesn’t love fondue and yummy cheese?)
We’re thrilled to have had a great turnout and are beyond thankful for the support we continually receive from our donors and the community.
