CCOC 'On the Light Side' Annual Fundraiser Set For Two Evenings this Year, July 24-25
Capitol City Opera singers will start getting their first look at the music soon. Friends of the organization have already started looking around for wonderful silent auction items. And some of those 'in the know' have already started to think about the wonderful indoor picnic delicacies they will prepare for themselves and their guests.
All of this is in preparation for Capitol City’s 24th annual On the Light Side fundraiser which, this year, will be presented two evening in a row, Friday, July 24 and Saturday, July 25, at the Church of the Atonement, 4945 High Point Road, Sandy Springs.
This year On the Light Side will feature 13 singers performing music by the legendary American song writing duo, George and Ira Gershwin. Their music is synonymous with the Jazz Age. Your On the Light Side evening will be filled with the sounds of the roaring 20s and swinging 30s with selections from Porgy and Bess, Funny Face, Crazy for You, Nice Work If You Can Get It, among others. All the songs you know and love.
Doors open both evenings at 6:30 p.m. for the Silent Auction and the self-catered indoor picnic prior to the program which will begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person. Tables are $300 for a maximum of 10 people. Click here to see the growing list of silent auction items.
Tickets or tables may be purchased online (see Tickets for Upcoming Performances on the left side of this page). Or reservations may be made at anytime (starting now) by sending a check to the CCOC mailbox for the number of seats or tables you want to reserve. Be sure to mark in the memo line that the check is for On the Light Side. The mailing address is: Capitol City Opera Company, 1266 West Paces Ferry Road, #451. Atlanta, GA 30327.
