SPRING GALA! An evening at ‘Rockwood Abbey’
Be transported to a posh evening themed around the iconic Masterpiece Theater series Downton Abbey, where white-gloved footmen attended the creme de la creme of English society as they dined and danced. (Period dress encouraged-choose your epoch from Edwardian grandeur to the flappers of the 20s!)
Enjoy cocktails and appetizers on the terrace and browse the SILENT auction items, then move inside to be entertained by the full Santa Barbara Choral Society chorus in our spring gala concert, reminiscent of the Promenade Concerts popular at the turn of the 20th Century. Enjoy an elegant dinner, curated by Chef Darren McGrady (former Royal Chef to Queen Elizabeth II and to the late Princess Diana and her boys) and a LIVE auction offering exciting vacation stays, including an historic villa in Provence and a London experience with a tour (by private car) to Highclere Castle, setting of Downton Abbey. Plan now to join us for this festive and fun annual event to support the choral arts!
Seating is limited, so don’t delay!
Tickets: $125 per person — including cocktails, dinner, concert, and auction — available online.
