Come on along for a ‘Sentimental Journey’

Annual Spring Gala Fundraiser May 19, 2018 at Rockwood Woman’s Club

All Aboard! Tickets available online here.

Conductor JoAnne Wasserman will lead the SBCS chorus in a concert of music from Broadway hits and standards from the 1940s, followed by an evening of wine and retro cocktails, a cornucopia of canapés, dessert, dancing to big band and swing favorites, and live and silent auctions of fabulous vacation stays and themed items. Channel your inner Frank Sinatra or Ava Gardner and join in on the fun!

You’re invited to travel with the Santa Barbara Choral Society back to the year 1948, when the Choral Society was founded.

Our ‘Sentimental Journey’ will revisit a post-war era of economic stability and prosperity that saw the rise of the American Broadway musical tradition and the Big Band sound. The musical vibe will provide plenty of both!

Enjoy a retro evening of Cocktails and Canapés at The Copa! That’s right — we’ll be channeling the ’40s, typified by New York’s iconic Copacabana, where ringside tables will lure you onto the dance floor for a spin to the big band sounds of the fabulous Les Rose Orchestra.

Vintage attire is encouraged, but not required. Rummage grandma’s trunk for 1940s retro dresses, suits, hats, and gloves. And, of course, the ever-present strand of pearls.
