Arias in the Afternoon: A Mother’s Day Victorian Garden Party

Moth­er’s Day is right around the cor­ner, and we have the per­fect way to say thanks to your mom for being so wonderful. 

We bet she would enjoy her spe­cial day loung­ing in the sun in our pris­tine, fra­grant Vic­to­ri­an gar­den while being ser­e­nad­ed by singers from Union Avenue Opera. Did we men­tion the Lon­don Tea Room is pro­vid­ing scones, tarts and oth­er delec­table nib­bles along with their spec­tac­u­lar teas?

As the first of what we hope to be many joint events, this will be a fundrais­er to sup­port Camp­bell House Muse­um and Union Avenue Opera.  You should come. And bring your mom. You’ll be her favorite son or daughter.

Pen­cil us in on Sun­day, May 13, 2012 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM. The per­for­mance of pop­u­lar songs — includ­ing tunes by Gersh­win and Gilbert & Sul­li­van — begins at 3:00, and will last for about an hour. The Muse­um will be open for self-guid­ed tours with docents sta­tioned through­out the house. Tick­ets are $50 each, chil­dren 12 and under are $30 each, and they may be pur­chased by call­ing Union Avenue Opera at 314/361‑2881, or by click­ing here:
Adult tick­et: $50

We hope to see you there.…and trust us — Mom will love it.
