What: Ars Lyrica Spring Musical Series finale.
Where: The antique-rich home of Philamena and Arthur Baird.
The scoop: Ars Lyrica artistic director Matthew Dirst and mezzo soprano Cecilia Duarte performed a post-dinner concert of music for harpsichord and voice to the sellout gathering of music patrons. They sat at dinner tables lavishly decorated by Darryl & Co. and supped on gourmet fare from Abuso Catering, complemented with wine pairings from the Bairds' cellar.
While the Bairds served as hosts, Robin Angly and Miles Smith, Brendan and Kathryn Godfrey and Birgitt Van Wijk chaired the intimate gathering.
Who: Kinga Ferguson, Gosia Kinalska, Brett Hobby, Paul Hensley, Patrick Sullivan, Gwen Sims, Wojtek Burakowski, Connie Kwan-Wong, Jo Dee and Clifford Wright, Greg Robertson, Corey Tu and Andrew Davis, Darrin Davis, and Mario Gudmundsson.
