Hearts of Gold Gala!
Livestream from the Music Room at Rosario Resort
Tuesday, February 16, 5:00pm PT
Plus Special Recipes and Post Concert Reception
We are pleased to let you know that our usual December Leaves of Gold Concert this year is happening on Tuesday, February 16th at 5:00pm PT. Its proximity to Valentine’s Day has inspired us to name it our first ever Hearts of Gold!
The concert will feature cellist Sæunn Thorsteinsdóttir and oboist Nathan Hughes
, who will travel up from Seattle to join our very own violinist and violist Aloysia Friedmann and pianist Jon Kimura Parker. The evening will include music by J.S. Bach, Heinichen, Saint-Saëns, Loeffler and Beethoven. You can find complete details of the works on our website. All appropriate Covid-19 protocols will be followed.
Since we can't be together in person, enjoying the delicious post-concert spread from the kitchens of Rosario Resort and Spa, your Gala ticket will include recipes from some of the finest chefs on the island, specially prepared for the evening. We are gathering simple, “using things you already have around the house” suggestions from the likes of Bill Patterson, Christina Orchid, Raymond Southern, Ship Bay, The Orcas Hotel and Café…so you can have the best of Orcas, made by the best chef on the island – you!
The concert will be a Zoom webinar, and once the performance is over, we shall leave that Zoom session and invite you into a second Zoom Meeting, where we can gather, visit with each other and the artists, share what beauteous food you have created, and raise a glass!
Leaves of Gold is our most gala event of the year, and this year, Hearts of Gold will be the same! Tickets are $50 ($35 of which is a tax donation) and includes the Zoom Webinar concert, Zoom reception, the recipes…plus you will be the first to receive a downloadable PDF of our 2020 Commemorative Program.
We thank our Concert Sponsors Valerie and Bill Anders and our Artist Sponsors Martha Farish and Joe Cohen, Lindy and Jack Groban, and Carol Marcin and Tom Burg. Thanks also to Christopher Peacock, Jan and Jerry Barto, and Rosario Resort – it wouldn’t be Gold if it weren’t coming from that magical Music Room!
