|I’ll hopefully be singing at the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston’s 7th Annual Gala, featuring the Auction of Arias, 7pm Friday, February 25th, at the Junior League of Houston. The evening will include passed hors-d’oeuvres, a three-course dinner, and open bar. In addition to the Auction of Arias, there will also be a silent auction of great items and experiences.|
Above I said “hopefully” because the attendees will be responsible for selecting the music for the evening. During each course, we will auction off the opportunity to select songs to be performed from that course’s “Song Menu.” The Song Menu for the evening will include pieces from the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire as well as other opera and musical theater numbers. I’ll be offering:
• “Oh, what a beautiful mornin’” from Oklahoma!
• “When I was a lad” from HMS Pinafore
• “I am the very model of a modern major-general” from The Pirates of Penzance
• and “Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen” from Die Zauberflote.
This is our biggest fundraiser for the year, helping us to pay for the summer show and our scholarship programs. The evening promises to be a lot of fun, so I do hope you can join us. Tickets start at $100, and can be purchased online here or calling 281-724-8363.
Looking forward to seeing (and singing for?) you!
