IRON?MOUNTAIN?-Pine Mountain Music Festival announces the opening event of its 22nd Season, the Chippewa Club Gala on June 13 in Iron Mountain.
This traditional kickoff event is a festive occasion to meet our 2012 Resident Opera Artists in a more intimate and personal setting. Our Resident Opera Artists from all over - Oregon, Ohio, Texas, Maryland, Bermuda, and Illinois - come together in the Upper Peninsula for the first time. Following an elegant dinner, guests will enjoy highlights from opera and American musical theatre repertoire.
Joshua Major, PMMF artistic director, and Lucy Thrasher, ROA program director, will host the evening event. Susan Byykkonen, accomplished teacher and pianist from Calumet will accompany.
Be the first to meet the Festival's six Resident Opera Artists, who will later star in Mozart's "Cosi fan tutte" on June 17 at Norway-Vulcan Performing Arts Center, as well as in Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" on July 13 and 15 at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts, Houghton.
The ticket price includes full dinner and dessert, and there will be a cash bar. This year's elegant dinner will feature caramel apple salad, white peach sorbet, slow braised pork with a brandy demi-glaze, summer sweet onion whipped potato, pecan pesto carrot bundles, with dark chocolate cafe latte martini for dessert.
Tickets are $80 and are available until June 6; call 1-877-746-3999 (toll free.) Seating is limited.
