On a High Note
Santa Barbara Choral Society, which pefoms its Hallelujah Project 6 at the Lobero on December 8 and 9 with Sound of Music actress Angela Cartwright narrating ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, celebrated with a fall soirée at the Montecito aerie of Todd and Allyson Aldrich.
The fun 30-guest fete, after the Thomas Fire caused the cancellation of one of last year’s Yuletide shows and Cartwright cancelling her appearance because of concerns about the smoke affecting her voice, oozed with optimism with JoAnne Wasserman, in her 26th year as music director, describing this year’s show as “quite a dazzler.”
Guests at athe party, catered by Via Maestra, included Peter and Karen Brill, Michael and Mary Dan Eades, Brian and Giselle McDermott, Gary and Kate Rees, Steve and Debra Stewart, Ross and Karen Williams, and Jim and Susan Robbins.
