GALA! A Night on the Orient Express 4/21/18
Join friends old and new as we toast the start of our 72nd season, with a Russian-themed reception in the Upper Lobby of The Klein on September 16, just before our first concert, 6 to 7 PM+. Meet Eric Jacobsen, and enjoy signature Russian cocktails by Asylum Distilleries of Bridgeport, complimented heavy hors-d'oeuvres with a Russian flavor. Kick off this season's rich variety of music with a hearty NA ZDOROVJE, "To your heart's content!" as the Russians have said for centuries.
what a night we had on the orient express!
Saturday, April 21 at the Brooklawn Country Club
herb moorin honored for years of dedication to gbs
Music filled every corner of the Brooklawn Country Club on Saturday night, April 21, as GBS took a trip on the Orient Express. Well over a hundred GBS supporters enjoyed wonderful company and beautiful music, provided by Music for Youth, the Wayne Hiller Quintet and the Fontenay Chamber Group (most of whose players are also GBS musicians). Longtime GBS Trustee Herbert H. Moorin, surrounded by his large family and many friends, was honored for "keeping us on track" -- in the theme of the evening. We gained a number of subscribers! Once people get to know GBS, they love us!
From April 2017:
What a party! GBS celebrated its
70th anniversary gala
at the fabulous
the Blue moon ball
GBS turned 70 years young on October 11 this year. We celebrated with a grand party at the Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield on April 29, with almost 100 guests attending. Music for the cocktail hour was provided through Music for Youth -- a woodwind trio that included the three winners of our 2017 Young Instrumentalists' Competition. It was an elegant black-tie evening sure to be remembered on anniversaries yet to come.
