Signs of spring mean it’s time for our annual Symphony of Wines wine tasting and silent auction. The Anchorage Symphony Orchestra invites you to join us for an evening of fine wine and fundraising to support the ASO’s artistic, education and community engagement programs. Generously sponsored for 22 years by Specialty Imports, this year’s Symphony of Wines is scheduled for Thursday, March 28th in The Hotel Captain Cook’s Discovery Ballroom.
For $90, this premier wine tasting gives you the opportunity to try over 100 different wines and spirits from manufacturers across the country. While sampling the best that vineyards and distilleries have to offer, you have the chance to speak directly with their representatives and hear how much passion goes into each bottle. Between sips of chardonnay there is a selection of appetizers and live music for you to enjoy.
While sampling a Riesling, stop by the silent auction. Monies raised allow us to provide resources for several meaningful ASO programs. The Tickets for My Neighbors program provides over 100 tickets to each concert to local schools, military families, and social agencies. Every year our Young People’s Concerts requires transportation and other operational costs to bring over 7,000 elementary school students to attend school-time concerts. For some of them this is their first experience in the concert hall. Proceeds from the silent auction also help fund our annual Free Neighborhood Concert. Performed at a local high school, this community concert provides a way for anyone and everyone to enjoy your Anchorage Symphony Orchestra.
Don’t miss out on our renowned Instant Wine Cellar raffle. With only 100 tickets being sold, the odds couldn’t be better for a chance to win our Grand Prize; over 30 bottles of premier wine to add to or start an impressive personal cellar, a value of over $2,000! Tickets sell out every year, so call the ASO office at 274-8668 to get yours today.
Mark your calendars for March 28th from 7-9:30pm, and treat yourself to Anchorage’s premier wine tasting event that benefits your Anchorage Symphony. Admission tickets are $90 and available online at anchoragesymphony.org or by calling our office at 274-8668.
