Fundraiser > Part of “Dinner with the Artists,” will be at the Blue Window Bistro

For the classical guitar fan, an opportunity to dine with one of the world’s great guitarists, Jason Vieaux, is just around the corner.
The Los Alamos Concert Association announces that there are a few tickets remaining to their annual “Dinner with the Artists” at which Vieaux  and his duo partner, harpist Yolanda Kondonassis,  will be the honored guests.
The dinner, at the Blue Window Bistro, will follow their performance scheduled for 4 p.m. March 16 in the Duane Smith Auditorium.  
“This is a great way to get acquainted with Jason and Yolanda and to have a fine post-concert meal with friends,” said Ann McLaughlin, LACA artistic director.
Tickets to the LACA fundraiser are $55 per person, $20 of which is a tax deductible contribution to LACA.  A mail-in order form is available on the LACA website at losalamosconcert.org. LACA will also accept written requests for dinner tickets sent to P.O. Box 572 by Saturday. Concert tickets will be available at CB Fox Smith’s in Los Alamos and White Rock.
Grammy nominee Yolanda Kondonassis made her debut with the New York Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta at age 18.  Since then she has performed around the globe as a concert soloist and in recital.  
Vieaux  has performed as soloist with more than 50 orchestras and has been a perennial favorite on public radio’s “Performance Today.”  Much in demand as a chamber music collaborator, he is also on the faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Music and founded the guitar department at the Curtis Institute.
Concert attendees may also join Kondonassis and Vieaux for an informal conversation at 3 p.m. in the Duane Smith Auditorium prior to the 4 p.m. performance.
