Cows & Classics: A Sunday afternoon in the country
 
Lovely music, taste-tempting finger food, a glass of wine, a stroll through enchanting perennial gardens . . . 
 
What could be more enticing?
 
So make your plans now for Cows & Classics, the Stratford Symphony Orchestra's annual summer music celebration and fundraiser on Sunday, June 23, at the David and Annamarie Murray farm west of Stratford.
 
Musical performances by . . .
-- the Full House Brass Quintet (SSO musicians)
-- Natalie Ropp, flute
-- Josie Nicholson, voice, winner of the Stratford Star competition
-- Chloe Weir, voice, winner of Kiwanis competition and national musical     theatre gold medalist (2017)
-- Sydney Harvey, voice
-- Maggie and David Murray, piano duet
 
Plus, by popular demand, Geisha, the Murrays' farm dog, will yowl artfully to host David Murray's piano accompaniment.
 
The gate opens at 1:30 and the music starts around 2:00. Before and after the music, guests can stroll through the Murrays' magnificent gardens and farm buildings, snack on a variety of complimentary hors d'oeuvres, and purchase wine or beer.
 
Surprise gift bags containing items donated by Stratford-area merchants will be available at $20 each. In all cases, the value of the bag's contents will exceed $20.
 
Tickets ($20) are available at the event, as well as on the SSO website  and at Blowes Stationery and Fanfare Books in Stratford.
 
NOTE: Rain or shine, the show goes on in the spacious Murray hay storage hoop structure. (Please bring a chair for each member of your party.)
 
To reach the Murray farm  from Stratford, drive west on Highway 8 toward Mitchell. Turn left on Road 155 and proceed to 3844.    
 
Stratford Symphony Orchestra appreciates and would like to acknowledge the following companies and businesses who support our work.  We are forever indebted to them for their kindness and generosity.
