Comox Valley Community Foundation gala tickets on sale

Crimson & Gold Fall Gala takes place Oct. 19

Tickets to the Comox Valley Community Foundation 2019 Crimson & Gold Fall Gala are now available.

This annual event is one of the most anticipated affairs of the year often selling out well in advance.

This year the CVC Foundation Gala will be held at the Florence Filberg Centre on Saturday, Oct. 19 and includes top-notch entertainment, a gourmet dinner and silent and live auctions.

Vancouver based “Joe Trio” will be the featured entertainment of the evening.

“Joe Trio is not your average piano trio,” said Gala committee chair, Chrissie Bowker. “They’re not afraid to mix together so many styles of music into a single piece it makes your head spin…”

Their repertoire includes the classics – from Joseph “Papa” Haydn to Uncle Shostakovich, and Brother Beethoven. They perform new works by contemporary composers, and their own arrangements of popular, jazz and rock tunes.

More than virtuosi, the Trio’s members are fantastic performers who engage the audience in a way few classical musicians can. Amply witty, charming, and tremendously musical, Joe Trio leaves audiences with a new appreciation for classical music.

Joe Trio has been heard on National Public Radio in the United States, RTE Lyric FM in Ireland, and on many CBC Radio shows including Morningside, Disc Drive, The Music Room, West Coast Performance, and Quirks and Quarks.

All of the funds raised from this event will help support the CVC Foundation and the important work they do in the Comox Valley. Tickets to the Crimson & Gold Gala can be purchased on line at www.cvcfoundation.org
