The week’s performance program begins with our Saturday night Welcome Show where you’ll meet the current season’s ensemble of talented musicians and enjoy a sample of the coming week’s performances. On Sunday, you’ll enjoy a chamber music recital, followed by a children’s opera on Monday morning and a Broadway show on Monday evening. Tuesday evening brings a piano recital, and on Wednesday morning, the children’s musical is a delight for the young (and the young at heart). On Wednesday night, you can see a full opera performance. Thursday evening begins with dancing to the Quisi Jazz combo, followed by a musical revue set up cabaret-style. Friday’s Concert Night closes the week with a selection of opera arias and ensemble pieces.
