Reception for Choral Arts
Nick and Deborah Smith hosted their 4th Annual Choral Arts cocktail reception Nov. 8 in honor of the 32nd Annual Choral Arts Holiday Concert & Gala to be held Dec. 17 at the Kennedy Center. It was a relaxed evening among fervent supporters. Gala auction items will include two tickets to view the 57th Presidential Inauguration from the Canadian Embassy, an insider Scotch tasting and the promise of Denise Graves calling to wish you happy birthday. Incoming artistic director Scott Tucker acknowledged the beloved Norman Scribner as “learning to catch fire by your fire.” His remarks were followed by an on key holiday sing-along.
