Will Sing for Wine... Live!
This intimate live event will be a feast for the senses as we indulge in "old world" musical repertoire and vintages. In this hour-long program, soprano Rebecca Richardson and pianist Felix Jarrar will be performing both well-known and less performed classical vocal works with piano by composers such as Debussy, Verdi, Obradors, and more! Each musical set will be paired with a carefully selected wine representing the country from which the music originated.
The price of the ticket includes entry to the event, all wines paired with the concert, and light snacks before and after the concert. There are no assigned seats; all seating is first come, first served. Only 40 seats available!
