Thanks to Community for Supporting Evening of String Trios

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Connelly Law Offices, Classical Tuesdays' audience enjoyed a delightful evening of string trios and duos on November 8.  The Manette Trio performed works by Beethoven, Mozart, Dohnanyi and Kodaly to a full audience in our lovely Slavonian Hall.

The support of members of the Old Town Business & Professional Association makes it possible to present these concerts - for free - in the Old Town District. For the Manette Trio concert, the Connelly Law Offices underwrote the expense of the concert and printed the flyers and programs for the event. Many thanks for these generous contributions!

Classical Tuesdays also has a number of full-season sponsors, including both businesses and individuals in the district. The Slavonian-American Benevolent Society offers the series free use of the hall, the Old Town Starbucks donates coffee and cups, and Cathy Russell at the Hawthorn Tea Room contributes teas and cookies. Last but not least, the Tacoma Arts Commission grants financial support for the entire season--for seven straight seasons of Classical Tuesdays!

Thanks to The Volcano for including the Classical Tuesdays November 8 concert as one of 5 Things To Do Tonight.

We appear to score somewhere below the bare-chested young men of the Twilight series.... With such competition, we appreciate the mention!
