Last-Minute Plans Are Often the Best—"AN EVENING OF SONGS IN OLD TOWN" Benefits "CLASSICAL TUESDAYS" Free Concert Series

Note: It has been an exceptionally busy week behind the scenes at Good Life Northwest, so I apologize for not posting this sooner, especially when I received word of it in plenty of time. Here is a wonderful way to spend your Tuesday evening, December 9th. 

If you've ever driven through North Tacoma's Old Town neighborhood, you've probably admired the elegantly restored building on the water side, housing the John Connelly Law Offices, I remember when it was an Italian restaurant with an amazing view, but I have not been inside since the restaurant closed. Some of that Italian ambience will return on Tuesday night, at 7 p.m., when the gracious law office will both sponsor and host the annual Wine & Song Benefit for Classical Tuesdays in Old TownALL proceeds will go toward sustaining this wonderful series of free concerts*. When you read on, you will see that the ticket price of $25.00 per person is a bargain.

The evening's entertainment will feature three great talents: tenor Gino Lucchetti, baritone Charles Robert Stephens, and the pianist and composer  Jeffrey Moidel, who also wrote some of the songs, based on the poetry of Pablo Neruda. Guests will enjoy hits from Italian opera, Neapolitan songs, and romantic numbers made popular in the 1940s and '50s. The program will end with the two singers delighting everyone with their duets.

Then, when the singing ends, the party begins. 

After enjoying the music, guests will mingle for conversation over a glass of wine poured by Gingko Forest Winery Tasting Room and served with delicious finger foods, all included in the price. How could there be a more delightful way to spend an evening?
