Arts Wrap: Mozart on a Summer’s Eve, Art Salvage mini-grants, ‘Traditions of Christmas’

UPDATED: Thu., June 10, 2021

Northwest BachFest will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mozart on a Summer’s Eve over the course of two “Magical Musical Evenings” beginning at 7 p.m. July 20 and with a repeat performance at 7 p.m. July 21. Ticketing will be limited to avoid crowding.

During the program, Northwest BachFest artistic director Zuill Bailey will pay tribute to former music director Verne Windham for 30 years spent programming the Mozart on a Summer’s Eve concert series. The series is now under Bailey’s musical direction.

In addition to Bailey – a Grammy Award-winning cellist – the program will also feature soprano Shelly Watson, jazz pianist Matt Herskowitz and ragtime and classical pianist Richard Dowling.

The concerts will take place on the lawn east of the Duncan Gardens fountain in Manito Park, 2124 S. Tekoa St. Tickets are $40 for back lawn seating and $60 for front lawn seating. For more information, visit nwbachfest.com or foxtheaterspokane.org for tickets.

A limited number of eight-person tables are also available at $720 per table. To purchase table seating, contact Northwest BachFest at (509) 326-4942.

Art Salvage mini-grants
