Chocolate Rhapsody: A Celebration of Love and Chocolate
Music and chocolate lovers alike are in for a treat this February as the Anchorage Museum of History and Art and the Sitka Summer Music Festival present the 5th annual winter concert at the Museum. This year's event, "Chocolate Rhapsody: A Celebration of Love and Chocolate," happens Saturday, Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.
Musical pieces will include works from composers either inspired or tormented by love. Chocolate--ever a balm for love--is the other star of the event. Sumptuous chocolate desserts and red wine will be served in the museum's atrium directly following the concert. Two world-renowned musicians will perform, including Sitka Summer Music Festival founder and violinist Paul Rosenthal. Celebrated German pianist Arnulf von Arnim also performs.
The event is a benefit for the Sitka Summer Music Festival and the Anchorage Museum Association. Tickets are $40 per person, and are available in the Anchorage Museum Shop or by calling the AMA Membership office at 343-6109, or the Sitka Festival office at 277-4852.
"Chocolate Rhapsody: A Celebration of Love and Chocolate" is held in conjunction with the Sitka Summer Music Festival's Alaska Airlines Winter Classics, a chamber music series in its 21st season in Anchorage.
