One nice annual event is the Dinner Concert performed by the Menomonee Falls Symphony, always scheduled near Valentines Day, and featuring light orchestral and Pops music. This year, the concerts will again be held at the Silver Spring Country Club on Friday February 14th and Saturday February 15th beginning at 6:30.
The concert will feature special guests Kostia Efimov and Ellen Winters. Mr. Efimov is a classical and jazz pianist - MFSO fans may remember that he performed with the Darrell Stuermer band for the Music of Genesis concert. Ellen Winters provides vocals for their review of American Songbook favorites. And of course, the duo is backed by the full, lush sound of the Menomonee Falls Symphony Orchestra.
The evening features good food, good music, and some fun raffles. Each section of the orchestra puts together different baskets and items that can be won with a lucky ticket. The proceeds help support the orchestra. And the Silver Spring Country Club in February is beautiful to view from the warmth of the banquet hall. All in all, a wonderful evening that support a great cause!
Tickets are $45 per person. You can get tickets via mail order from the MFSO web site. Note that tickets must be purchased in advance and that, in previous years, the dinner concerts have sold out. So, get your order in the mail right away. You don't want to miss this one.
