Dear friends, the South Bay Guitar Society and Noon Arts & Lectures are hosting a wonderful event on January 27th, and you’re invited!
There will be tasty hors d’oeuvres, delicious wine and, of course, a selection of enriching performances by artists of the Bay Area. Some of these are Firebird Chinese Orchestra, members of Chamber Music Silicon Valley, Lyric Theater, and Dave Eisbach. If that’s not enough, we have something more for you: A silent auction!
Our 13th annual ARTS PANORAMA gala (Fri Jan 27) will deliver a full evening of fascinating conversations among art lover friends, wine, hors d’oeuvre, desserts, diverse “best of” staged entertainment and a silent auction.
This year it’s not produced under the Silicon Valley Arts Coalition banner but instead by and for two small budget SVAC member organizations:
