YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Taconic Opera has scheduled an unusual fund-raiser in White Plains next month.
After having expanded its performances to White Plains a few years ago, the company is ready to move its annual fund-raiser into Westchester’s central city. The company will have its annual gala at 7 p.m., Sept. 12, at the CV Rich Mansion in downtown White Plains.
The gala’s theme is “The Yellow Brick Road.” Will the company depart from singing opera at the event and share something sung by Judy Garland?
“That will be a wonderful surprise,” said Dan Montez, general director, in a prepared statement. “This gala will be special and feature a storyline throughout the evening that will take us all down that memorable road to our own Emerald City.”
The company promises the extremes of entertainment on this journey from the hilarious to the dramatic. The event will feature dinner, entertainment from its top operatic artists and an opportunity to honor some important individuals who have done so much to support the arts in the community.
Attendance at the event will be by donation of $150 to $250.
Tickets and reservations for the event can be arranged online or by calling 855-88-OPERA.
The CV Rich Mansion is at 305 Ridgeway, White Plains.
