Tickets have gone on sale for the Trout Lake Art Council's "A Perfect Summer Evening," a catered picnic and concert.
The event takes place the evening of July 21 at The Farm, a B&B, located at 490 Sunnyside Road in Trout Lake.
The proceeds of this event support the Trout Lake Festival of the Arts, now in its sixth year.
The evening begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. There will be eclectic country music by Trout Lake's Caleb Lambert and Jessie Pearson. There will be appetizers and libations provided by the arts council.
The dinner, catered by Applewood Catering of Hood River and Vancouver, features roast pork, Tuscan-style beans, Roulade of chicken with prosciutto, artichoke hearts and sage, and much more.
At 7:45 p.m., the concert in the barn by classical guitarist Adam Myer begins.
Myer describes himself as a musician with deep musical convictions. He has been well received by audiences in the United States and Canada, including several televised solo recitals as part of Portland's Chamber Music at City Hall recital series. He has performed, written and recorded music for several prominent metropolitan theater companies.
As a chamber musician, he is a founding member of the Portland Guitar Trio. He has performed works by Weben, Stravinsky, Hindemith, and other 20th century composers with the Northwest symphonic and chamber groups. Currently a student at Portland State University, he was the solo recipient of the prestigious triennial Wilma Sheridan Music Performance scholarship in 1999.
The event has been very popular with many returnees. Those who have attended have been delightfully surprised by the acoustics in the old barn at The Farm.
