On Sunday, March 20, 170 Ash Lawn Opera supporters came to Farmington Country Club to kick off our 2016 season at our annual Spring Gala. Featuring a special performance by Aleksey Bogdanov, baritone, and Rebecca Nathanson, soprano, the event raised over $50,000 for Charlottesville’s opera company. In addition to the wonderful guests who came out to celebrate, Ash Lawn Opera would like to thank Carol Cooper, Gala Chair; Sue Ann Sarpy, Silent Auction Chair; our dedicated Guild and Board volunteers; staff; and Farmington Country Club for making this event a success. Special thanks also to MoxBox for providing an awesome photobooth, and the many local businesses and individuals that donated to our Silent Auction.
