The leaves are showing color here is central Virginia and that means: All things apple and the Live Arts Gala is coming soon. Here are a few things I found that might help you get your culture on this week…
On Thursday you can Groove to the jazz stylings of the Bruce Sullivan Trio as part of nonprofit VMFA’s Jazz- Cafe series in Richmond.
Then on Saturday you can indulge in a local favorite treat during the 18th Annual Apple Butter Festival at Wades Mill in Raphine. GLENN WILSON will be stirring up some wonderful old timey Apple Butter in his copper pot and You can take a turn at the stirrer if you like.
On Saturday night you can enter a world of martinis, tuxedos, exotic locales, and amazing gadgetry when nonprofit Live Arts presents its annual Gala, Party Galore. Warning: Espionage, intrigue, and absurdly complicated chase scenes will ensue.
For information about these events click on the links embedded in the text above or go to wnrn.org, click on the features bar then on Culture Connection.
Full Disclosure: I will be performing as a Russian Assassin during the Live Arts Gala in a couple of James Bond skits. Hope to see you there.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered and donated during the WNRN fund drive last week!
