Following dinner, attendees were treated to the music talents of current members and interns with classical selections including pieces by Mozart, and the beautiful “Si, Mi chiamano Mimi,” as sung by Alexis Rodda, who will be singing the role of Mimi in La bohème with Ars Musica on March 8, 2013.
Dessert included biscotti and tiramisu and concluded with a Moscato, another sparkling white wine with a sweet finish similar to apricots and white ginger. Paul Donohoe began the auction during dessert with record making bids for prepared sauerkraut, baked goods, and a lovely orchid portrait donated by Paul from his work with the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. The silent auction also concluded with items selling in support of Ars Musica’s artistic mission.
