High Desert Chamber Music Ninth Annual Gala will be held Saturday, November 19 at 6pm at the Bend Golf & Country Club.
This year’s gala emcee is Bob Shaw from the KTVZ Newschannel 21 Team and the evening includes a performance, dinner and silent auction with donations from over 100 local businesses and organizations. The concert will feature the recipients of our Educational Outreach program, the Spotlight Chamber Players, performing La Follia by Antonio Vivaldi.
The Spotlight Chamber Players program provides a high level of weekly chamber music instruction with Isabelle Senger, as well as select visiting artists. This program provides performance opportunities at all HDCM events and in the community, and is offered at no cost to the student. Auditions are held annually in the fall. The students selected for this year’s program include Mateo Garza (violin), Jacob Lorenz (violin), and Amy Wheeler (cello).
Proceeds from this evening will allow High Desert Chamber Music to continue offering Educational Outreach opportunities at no cost to any students, teachers, or schools in Central Oregon.
