Supper Club “Summer” Newsletter
THE CHAMBER MUSIC
The perfect evening!
Wonderful Food – Great Companions – Superb Music
The Chamber Music Concerts are extraordinary. AFCM wanted everything surrounding them to be memorable. To that end, we inaugurated a wonderful new Chamber Music Supper Club last January. The focus was to be on the members of the audience of our Wednesday Evening Concerts. The format was simple. Dinner together followed by the Concert. We met with resounding success.
“Pastiche” Restaurant is our Home. It is an old favorite, has great food, a marvelous atmosphere and has been owned by Pat and Julie Connors for many years, themselves lovers of Chamber Music and supporters of AFCM. It is like having dinner at the home of old friends. We are seated together and the camaraderie between like-minded people flourishes. Each person can select from the full, eclectic menu and Pastiche delivers speedy service and timely individual bills. The Leo Rich Theater is a short drive from Pastiche. We start at 5 PM and we are never late for the concert!
What makes this dinner special? Nancy Monsman, Jay Rosenblatt and James Reel. Nancy, musician and artist who writes the “Notes” for all the Concerts, Jay, our equally beloved musicologist and hero from the Humanities Seminars at the U of A and James, the popular announcer on KUAT-FM, the Executive Director of SASO and an AFCM Pre-Performance speaker. They have generously agreed to rotate and speak to us for about 10 minutes at each of our “Supper Club” gatherings. We now have a roster of the best prepared, knowledgeable and generous of Speakers in Tucson. They will offer their comments and insights on the Evening’s Program and the excitement will rise as we happily anticipate the music that we are about to enjoy. We are delightfully “primed” for the concert.
Please join us. It will give all of us the opportunity to meet new friends and deepen the bonds of existing friendships.
It is so easy to assure yourself of a superb evening. Simply call or email for information or a reservation.
