Sounds of Music Fall Gala

November 5 - Saints Peter & Paul Catholic School Fall Gala - Sounds of Music

7th Annual Fall Gala for Saints Peter & Paul School. Come on out to support this wonderful local school in Cary which consistently produces some of the finest young adults and citizens around. (I ought to know, I'm a 1975 Graduate of SS Peter & Paul School!).

Enjoy touring the House & Collection, auctions, raffles, dinner, and more! ** On a personal note, we recently gave a special tour to the 7th graders (now 8th graders) at Saints Peter & Paul. The students were engaging, with interesting questions, and every single student took the time to write a personal note to the Sanfilippo family for the experience.

Join us for The Sounds of Music Gala.

Mozart Festival

November 19 - Midwest Mozart Festival - Amadeus Movie Night

Join the Orchestra and Board members of the Midwest Mozart Festival and the Sanfilippo Foundation for a fun, movie night on the big screen featuring the award-winning film, AMADEUS. You loved it back in 1984, so experience it again on the big screen at the Sanfilippo Estate. If you haven't seen it, now's your chance to experience "Wolfie" and his antics, and Salieri and his plotting, along with the exquisite music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

We'll open up the house Sanfilippo Collection at 4:30 pm for touring before the film, with Docents demonstrating music machines and the Wurlitzer Theater Organ. At 5:30 pm, we'll screen the movie AMADEUS. As it's a 3-hour movie, we'll have an intermission with wine and hors d'oeuvres graciously donated by Wild Asparagus Catering of Barrington, where you can mingle with Orchestra members and learn more about their 2017 season, including their July 30, 2017 concert at the Sanfilippo Estate. Movie & Tour Tickets are only $45.00 each and the proceeds go to help continue bringing some of the finest Classical Music to our area, from an Orchestra that will be playing its 31st year together in 2017. **Please note this film is for those 18 and over. Join us for the rampant fun, the camaraderie, and a great film.
