Couples Evening Retreat
Wednesday, May 8, 2019
5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Marcie and Gordon
Join us for a delightful ‘date night’ including a wealth of great pairings. Our first pairing, wine and cheese, will be offered before our delicious buffet meal of ‘surf & turf’ (second pairing). Our presenters for the evening are a great pair themselves, Marcie and Gordon Swift. They combine their talents and musical instruments, the harp and violin, to create beautiful music together. Marcie and Gordon will share great tales about how they met and how music later tightened the bonds between them. In addition, they will perform musical selections from their recently released CD entitled: The Heart is True. Together this married couple demonstrates the unifying, intimate power of music as refuge from a chaotic world.
Offering: $40 per person (includes wine & cheese and dinner)
