*Pre-concert Reception - Special Announcement
A new feature of this year’s concert experience will be an informal wine and hors d’oeuvres reception to be held in Sukman Foyer (Millard Auditorium’s lobby) prior to each of the concerts taking place in Millard Auditorium, and in the Lincoln Theater lobby prior final concert of the season, taking place in Lincoln Theater. Each reception will offer a cash wine bar, and the hors oeuvres will be complimentary to all ticket holders. Patrons may arrive any time during the 6 to 7 p.m. serving hour, with no advance reservations required. The receptions will replace the pre-concert dinners previously held in the 1877 Club.
This series is made possible in part by a grant from the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
