Start your summer off with A Garden Party! Classical Public Radio 89.9 WDAV announced its musically themed garden party, Classics in Bloom, to be held on Friday, June 12 at 6pm at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden in Belmont, NC.
Classics in Bloom, sponsored by Steinway Piano Gallery-Charlotte with additional support provided by Greer Walker Wealth Management, is a special event celebrating WDAV’s classical music mission. “Our goal with this celebration is to bring together music lovers from around the region,” says Rodger Clark, director of development. “Classics in Bloom is an opportunity to enjoy exquisite cuisine, wonderful company, and magnificent music in a most inspiring natural setting-all the while raising financial support for WDAV.”
In the weeks leading up to the event, an online auction will be held. Auction items include unique experiences such as a hot air balloon ride and an offshore ocean fishing excursion as well as specialty items and trips to Mexico, Manhattan, and more. This portion of the auction closes at midnight on June the 10th.
The evening itself kicks off with a reception and silent auction, as well as a time to enjoy the beautiful Daniel Stowe Garden. Guests will then be treated to a performance by the renowned Ciompi Trio from Duke University. Following the performance, dinner will be served.
