On The Light Side

Friday-Saturday, July 24-25, 2015
Church of the Atonement
4945 High Point Road, Sandy Springs, Ga.
It's our biggest fundraiser of the year! Join us for an evening with music from one of the greatest songwriting duos in American history. George and Ira Gershwin's music is synonymous with the Jazz Age. Join us as we create an evening 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, and all the songs you know and love.

Bring your indoor picnic and wine and relax as a cast of 16 singers entertains you through song and dance.
You will also enjoy an outstanding silent auction which will include home decor, food and drink, travel and leisure packages, and professional services. 

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for dining and the silent auction. Program starts at 8 p.m.  

Your contributions help Capitol City Opera 
produce excellent programs year-after-year-after-year.

Would you like to contribute an item or a service to our Silent Auction?
