NSCS Gala Photos

We had a wonderful 75th Anniversary Gala and Soireé on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at the Unitarian Church of Evanston!   In addition to our retrospective concert, the evening featured a silent auction, raffle, and champagne reception.  Corey Grigg, the first Donald Chen Young Artist Award winner, was the baritone soloists at the concert, which featured the world premiere of Pleasure Tunes My Tongue by Anne Heider, commissioned by former NSCS president David Hunt for our 75th Anniversary Season.  We also sang excerpts from two pieces commissioned for our 50th Anniversary Season: "The Cosmos" from The Geometry of Music by Donald Draganski and "Epilogue" from A Reason for Singing by Dan Tucker.  Don Draganski and the family of Dan Tucker attended the gala, as well as our former Music Director Donald Chen. 

A good time was had by all!
