Next will be a performance from the other end of the musical spectrum — an outstanding classical offering the likes of which Knox has been known for 67 years — The Haifa Symphony Orchestra of Israel on Jan. 18.
The reception was held Monday, March 25, at the Cummings’ Rebecca Trail home. Lesa and co-chairman Janice Powell thanked their fellow volunteers with a myriad of pickups that included homemade fried ravioli, spinach dip and fig cheese with ginger cookies, topped off with macaroons from Anniston’s new Artisanal Bakery — a gift from fellow volunteer, Cathy Fockele.
Lee Merrill, Knox ticket chairman, reminded the ladies that their role is to call last year’s members, lest they forget that the series is “on sale” until May 1. However, the charter member subscription of $140 is available to the public as well. After May 1, the price will be $160.
Attending the delightful gathering were committee members Renee Stewart, Brigitte Miller, Robin Cooper, Pam Fite, Peggy Gudger, Pam Dawson, Augusta Andrews, Caroline Haberer, Virginia Parker, Linda Harvey, Martha Gray, Lynn Rice and Janet Miller.
After a pleasant visit, Janice and Lesa sent their guests on their way with calling lists and boxes of wildflower seeds, a charming thought that while sowing the seeds of support for a wonderful music season, they can sow summer flowers. All good.
All performances are held at the Anniston Performing Arts Center and begin at 7:30 p.m.
