Classical Tahoe Summer Gala Features
Branford Marsalis, Three-time Grammy Award-winner

The 2018 Classical Tahoe Summer Gala, a benefit event for Classical Tahoe, features a performance by three-time Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis. Set for July 8, 2018 at the lakefront estate of Kern Schumacher in Incline Village, Nevada, the event promises to be more thrilling than ever: Marsalis is joined by pianist Liz Ames, a delicious feast by Colin Smith of Roundabout Catering and an auction with one-of-a-kind experiences – all to benefit arts, culture, and learning at Lake Tahoe. 

Funds raised at the Gala support Classical Tahoe Music Institute, a new and interactive, multi-generational Institute for community involvement and education. A major grant from the Firefly Scientists’ Foundation matches qualified donations 4-to-1 for this new community education initiative.  

Along with the performance and silent auction, the Gala boasts a delicious meal featuring Bently Ranch dry-aged, grass-fed locally raised beef followed by an exhilarating live auction with spectacular packages in an intimate lakefront setting.

June 1, individual tickets increase to $300 and $3,000 for a table of 10. For reservations call 775-298-0245.
