Windhover Gala Fundraising Event – Fête Du Moment (Celebration of the Moment)
Following upon the tremendous success of Quarry Dance 3, Windhover invites you to a GALA FUNDRAISING EVENT: Fête Du Moment (Celebration of the Moment).
Windhover Performing Arts Center has been given a matching grant for exciting new plans to build an indoor theater. This will extend the season of live performances from May through October and allow for the continuance of excellent dance and theater events regardless of the weather. The goal will be to provide the audience with an exceptional experience at Windhover at all times.
In celebration of this grant and with a commitment toward building this theater and realizing this vision, we are hosting a two hour gala presenting Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre and Sarah Swift Slifer in a short program of dance during this intimate evening that also includes culinary treats, live jazz music, champagne and conversation. Dušan Týnek and his troupe from New York City performed the last three quarry dances on Cape Ann as well as their own choreography in the past on the Windhover stage. They are returning to perform a duet. Sarah Slifer Swift, a well-known performer on Cape Ann and award-winning choreographer, will present a solo dance she created while on artist’s retreat at Windhover.
Jazz pianist Joe Mulholland will perform some jazz riffs on keyboard.
Tickets are $55.00 per person and include festive drinks, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, the dance and music program – and an opportunity for great camaraderie.
Please join us as we launch our efforts to match the grant for a theater, and to rally around the expanding vision of historic Windhover. This Fête Du Moment will take place on the grounds of Windhover rain or shine, both indoors and outdoors (weather permitting.)
