Our annual fundraiser for Music Education features an elegant evening interlaced with music, starting with a cocktail reception followed up by a gourmet dinner, a live auction and the tremendously entertaining Duchess Trio.

The New Yorker writes: “Three fine singers...join together in swinging harmony to whip up music that traffics in delight…this fresh-voiced triumvirate plays it straight from the heart, leaving any trace of camp or post-modern irony at the door.”

Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony and ever-insouciant charm are embodied in the new jazz vocal trio Duchess, featuring notable New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou.  Blending the classic and the contemporary DUCHESS has quickly earned a reputation for beautiful singing and big fun at the group’s shows of “girl-on-girl harmony,” as the three so saucily put it. The New York-based threesome made its debut on record with the eponymous Duchess, released by Anzic Records in February 2015. The album channels the 1930s inspiration of the virtuosic Boswell Sisters into a wonderfully entertaining package.

Thank you for supporting Music Education and helping us bring the joy of music to 3,500 local children in the 2018/19 school-year. 

Our ninth annual Gala's Honorees are Betsy North Robinson and Anita Emery, of Everything Pines Partners, LLC, who have together had a foundational and profound influence on the growth of the Philharmonic's Educational Outreach programs over the past nine years. Not only have they lent significant support to the Phil, but also to several of our key partners across the community: Sandhills Community College, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sandhills, and Trinity Community Outreach Center. We salute you!
