Last Tuesday, we launched our 2013 CSA season at Partner The Rourke Gallery and Museum. With wine tastings from Bernie’s and food from Mosaic Catering, guests mingled, ate and drank and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Perhaps a highlight was Partner FM Area Youth Symphonies’ low brass quintet, who delighted the crowd with three pieces, including “Elephants on Parade.”
Artists Eric A. Johnson, Stevie Famulari and Beth Fortier, ED of FMAYS, and conductor Jane Capistran talked briefly about their art, and the shareholders were thrilled to take home a print from Eric, a leather band from Stevie and the promise of another private concert from the low brass and a string quartet at a later date from FMAYS.
What a lovely party. It was great to reconnect with some of last year’s shareholders and to meet so many new ones for this year! I look forward to another great gathering July 23!
