Musicians, orchestra staff and classical-lovers all gathered at Michael’s Wine Cellar on Nov.1 for the first of three Anu & Friends Dinners benefiting the Sarasota Orchestra this season. Guests dined on a gourmet Michael’s On East meal and watched a performance by Shelly Du, Acting Principal Harp, and Betsy Hudson Traba, Principal Flute. Masterworks 1 Soloist and Sarasota Orchestra Concertmaster Daniel Jordan also gave a talk on the Mendelssohn concerto that he has been performing with the Orchestra for 18 years, as well as his impressions of the 1695 Guarneri violin he plays.
The evening’s discussion was moderated by Russell Gant, Music Director and host on Classical WSMR.
