Safonia’s annual fundraiser. Do you have an ugly sweater or two lurking in your closet, waiting to be worn in the event of an emergency? Join us in a parade of awful fashion statements, won’t you? Our annual fundraiser will feature a knock out performance by the Badda Boom Brass Band as well as an ugly sweater competition, with prizes going to the most bizarre, the “wooliest” and the most inappropriate sweaters. Join us November 3, 4 and 5 for a weekend of fun and entertaining fundraising. This year we’ll be raising money to assist with the costs of Safonia’s Spring 2018 CD release of She Walks in Beauty, a project that features music by women composers. We’ll be focusing on music and composers who battle every day to walk through this ugly and sometimes dangerous world, to be moved to the core by the brilliance of life. You will have opportunities to sponsor a track on the CD, or subsidize a composition/composer, to give in service to the excellence you would like to thrive in our world as a foil to the challenges we see around us. Tickets are $35 and include admittance to the performance, one adult beverage and one appetizer.
Safonia is a women’s vocal ensemble in Denver dedicated to the synergy of music, passion and excellence. The choir was formed in 2004 focused on bringing together women’s voices with diverse musical experience from local to national choral backgrounds. The group has grown their passion and honed their talents over the past decade and is continuing to set their goals higher. This past June, Safonia traveled to New York as they were invited to sing at the notorious Carnegie Hall. The experience has led the group to seek out additional opportunities for travel and performance collaboration. The side effect is the costs involved in these adventures in addition to the cost of music, rehearsal space and accompanists. The funds raised in this event will assist the choir in achieving their new found goals and keep an affordable ticket price for their concerts. Please join us in sharing in our love for all things musical! For more information about Safonia you can visit their website at www.safoni.org. [Organizer's description]
