The Fine Arts Association Senior Matinee Series Offers Brunch-Performance Package

The Fine Arts Association is pleased to announce the first Senior Matinee Series performance of 2015. “Mid-day Music with the Mayor” features Mayor Dave Anderson on Wednesday, March 4 at 1:00 p.m. in the Corning Auditorium of The Fine Arts Association.

New for the March program, in partnership with Sisters Tea Room in Mentor, Fine Arts will be offering a Brunch-Performance package. Guests may attend an elegant brunch at the Tea Room at 11:00 a.m. where they’ll enjoy broccoli cheddar quiche, salad with mandarin oranges, almonds and sesame poppy seed dressing, cream scones with Devonshire cream and lemon curd, and Tea. The performance at The Fine Arts Association will immediately follow the brunch at 1:00 p.m

“Fine Arts is a great venue and I’m really looking forward to this event. I certainly invite people to come and discover ‘the other’ Dave Anderson,” said Mayor Anderson in advance of his performance.

Mayor Anderson, who has been playing the guitar for fifty-five years, will take the audience on a fun musical journey from jazz to country and from classical to pop. Much of his repertoire consists of arrangements by his “guitar heroes” Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel.

Individual performance tickets are $15 per person. Group tickets (for ten or more) are $12 per person.

The Brunch-Performance package must be reserved in person or by calling Fine Arts. The Brunch-Performance package is $30 per person.
