The Winter Musicale is our primary annual fundraising event, a recital followed by a fundraising dinner. Ticket sales cover less than half the cost of our concerts; the Winter Musicale plays an important role in making our Festival seasons possible.
The 40th Season Winter Musicale will be held on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 5 p.m. Violinist and artistic director Elizabeth Blumenstock and talented soloists will present an intimate recital featuring Handel opera arias, Telemann and Vivaldi, followed by a catered dinner. The full program for the 2019 Musicale is listed below for your reference.
If you are interested in joining us for our Winter Musicale in 2020, please join our mailing list for future updates; or bookmark this page and watch for details in late 2019. Anyone donating $125 or more after August 1, 2019, will be welcome to attend. Ways to give can be found on our Support Us page.
