Giving Tuesday has become a national commitment to support and sustain local non-profits during the holiday season. In a month when so much emphasis is placed on buying and shopping, Giving Tuesday is a refreshing reminder that the emphasis should be placed on giving gifts of true meaning or value, particularly those that make an impact in the community – whether committing cash and resources, or donating your time and energy.
This Giving Tuesday, Spey is proud to join forces with other art patrons to champion the DC-based Chamber Dance Project, dancers and musicians. The perfect way to drum up enthusiasm for the arts is to experience it, which is why Spey founding chief executive Paul Ashe is set to co-host an evening of music, ballet and wine in support of Chamber Dance.
This Tuesday – our national day of giving – the doors of the Capital Yacht Club (660 Water Street SW, Washington, DC 20024) will be thrown open as guests are welcomed with canapés and an open wine bar. Mingling among fellow ballet and chamber music (and wine!) enthusiasts, guests will then be invited to see art deconstructed.
Artistic Director Diane Coburn Bruning will introduce the talented dancers and string quartet for an exclusive performance – but why let them have all the fun? A few may get the opportunity to learn the steps onstage from the dancers themselves! The dancers and musicians will take apart the works they perform to examine and discuss with guests.
Music. Ballet. Wine. Need we say more? Get the party started for just $25 or two tickets for $45. Yacht Club members are admitted free of charge. What could be a better way to spend Giving Tuesday?
