The Friends of Music will hold their second annual Mardi Gras gala at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV, the evening of Friday, February 21.
Everyone is invited to attend this fun, festive event but seating will be limited. The evening will begin with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. followed by an elegant three-course Cajun-style dinner, music and optional dancing. Dress will be evening casual or festive, Mardi Gras-style attire.
The featured band will be Dixieland Express of Maryland, which performed at last year's dinner. They play true New Orleans style jazz with the traditional instrumentation of cornet, trombone, clarinet, tuba, banjo and drums.
Tickets will be $85 per person; $40 of that amount will be tax-deductible. Tickets can be purchased with a credit card through the Friends website at www.friendswv.org or by sending a check to Friends of Music, PO Box 220, Shepherdstown, WV 25443.
The event is a fundraiser for the Friends. All proceeds will benefit their concert programs and the grants and scholarships they provide to support music education in local schools.
