“Silver 25th Anniversary” is this year’s theme for Arcadia High School’s annual Orchestra Benefit Dinner and Concert. This annual event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, at the Arcadia Masonic Center (50 W. Duarte Road). The hors d’oeuvres reception and silent auction begin at 5:30 p.m. Dress is formal attire.
Twenty-five years ago, a group of “orchestra moms” proposed an idea to showcase the orchestra program. Over the years, this event has evolved into a successful fundraiser for the Arcadia Music Club.
The program begins with a catered dinner and is followed by entertainment featuring string ensembles from the Arcadia High School Orchestras. Also performing are special guest artists Isaiah Gage, cellist, featured on the musical scores of numerous television shows and films; and violinist Grace Rodgers whose musical career spans from classical to pop and includes many studio recordings and live productions. The unique grand finale showcases all 300 orchestra performers completely surrounding the guests.
Funds raised from this event provide orchestra necessities (coaching, musical instruments, materials and supplies) that may not otherwise be available to the orchestra program. There are four ways to support the event: purchase event tickets, purchase program book advertisement by Feb. 1, become a benefactor, or donate silent auction items. Premium seats are $65 while reserved tickets are $55. The deadline to purchase tickets is Feb. 15.
