Simply Elektra: A Fundraising Dinner for Elektra Sunday, June 6, 2010 ~ 6 pm

Directly following our Sunday afternoon performance of Romance, Elektra is inviting you and yours to join us at Vancouver's Terminal City Club. It's an opportunity to celebrate the close of a banner season for the choir, raise a glass (or two!), discuss your favourite music from the afternoon's concert and celebrate the many accomplishments of Elektra this year.
A tempting dinner (think wild mushroom risotto, miso maple glazed sablefish, and a dessert involving sinful amounts of white chocolate and raspberry mouse in delightful combination), is only the start to an evening of great banter, music, and enjoyment. Maestro Bramwell Tovey and Lana Penner-Tovey, will be our gracious Masters of Ceremonies, and, while we don't want to give away too many secrets, you may look forward to special performances by the choir, as well as a sprinkling of solo appearances from select Elektra members.

In addition to raising much-needed funds for the choir's future projects, the main purpose of this evening is to simply show our gratitude to you for your support and to allow you to spend an enjoyable evening simply in the company of Elektra. While our focus for "Simply Elektra" is on thanking you for your support and spending time with you, there will be a silent and live auction of a few select items including manuscripts of music commissioned for Elektra, and beautiful paintings from local artists. Our show-stopping wine raffle is always a favourite, and this year, we will have over 40 wines selected by connoisseur, Tim Higgs.

Tickets for "Simply Elektra" are $125, for which a donation receipt for $50 will be issued.  Tickets may be purchased by calling Bernice Slemko at the Elektra office: 604-739-1255 or emailing  Consider bringing your Elektra-loving friends and making up a table of ten. The evening starts at 6:15 pm.

Your presence on June 6th will help Elektra continue to bring inspiration, joy, and comfort to the many, many people around the world who love Elektra's glorious music. We hope that you can join us for this evening and look forward to spending time with you, our supporter and friend.
