Classical Tuesdays' Wine & Song Succeeds All-Round

Tuesday was the Classical Tuesdays Wine & Song Benefit, held at the John Connelly Law Offices. Walking into the Office lobby we were greeted by seasonal greenery, poinsettias, a tinseled tree and the glow of festive lights reflected on the highly polished woodwork.

The highlight of the evening was the beautiful performance by soprano Cyndia Sieden and pianist Jennifer Bowman. They performed the beautiful Pie Jesu by Faure and songs of Musto, Saint-Saens and Richard Strauss. Of special interest were three songs based on poetry of Cal Kinnear composed by Tacoma composer Greg Youtz. Encores included arias from Rigoletto and Candide. The music sounded wonderful in the salon-setting of the Office space.

The reception table was beautifully set by Old Town neighbor Chris Reynolds displaying lovely cookies and quite an array of tasty finger foods contributed by Old Town neighbors and by Metropolitan Market. Some lovely wines were poured by Sonie of the Ginkgo Forest Winery Tasting Room; another neighborly Old Town supporter.

A huge round of applause goes to these special supporters of this successful evening:
