Music in the Mountains to host ‘A Supper Club Affair’

Music in the Mountains will host its major fundraiser Nov. 7 at Nevada County’s newest event venue, the Foothill Event Center at 400 Idaho Maryland Road in Grass Valley.

The event entitled, “A Supper Club Affair,” will take attendees back to the 1940s, an era when dining, dancing and a show was the bill of fare for those seeking a good time.

The entertainment chosen for the evening epitomizes the Swing era of big bands and vocal groups. Sister Swing and the Chopped Liver Orchestra fit the bill perfectly.

Sister Swing is a fresh, exciting trio of singers who have captured the Big Band Swing era and bought it into the 21st century. Heavily influenced by groups like the Andrew Sisters, The Boswell Sisters and Manhattan Transfer, Sister Swing brings a new sound to an old familiar style.

The three gals, Leigh Hannah, Valerie Marston and Paula Chafey-Merrill genuinely have a good time on stage and that transcends to their audience. An evening with Sister Swing will take you back to a time of glamour, romance and innocence, according to event organizers.

Music in the Mountains has been part of the Nevada County arts scene for more than 30 years focusing on both performance and education.

The mission of Music in the Mountains is to inspire and connect people of all ages through extraordinary classical music performances, community engagement and music education. Its philosophy is to challenge the notion that classical music is stuffy. They present the full spectrum of classical music including pops, jazz, big band, Broadway, and many iterations of modern chamber music in its repertoire.

The Gala evening, black tie optional, starts at 6:30 for the cocktail hour and features martinis and manhattans.

Dinner will be at 7:30 followed by the show and dancing and a silent auction. All proceeds from the event benefit Music in the Mountains.

Tickets for the event are $125 per person.

There are table of eight available. Reservations can be made at the Music in the Mountains box office at 530 Searls Ave., Nevada City, 265-6124 or online at
