You've got to give Chuck Anderson, our honorable Alpenmeister, some credit for very creative fundraising to support the Oregon Alpenfest celebration. Even though Alpenfest doesn't happen until late September, he's out here in February with an Opera Night!
And what do you get? Opera classics in practically the most remote corner of Oregon, performed by very talented young people, a great dinner, and the opportunity to get out of the house in the middle of winter. What's better than that?
Who: Eastern Oregon University music major students from LaGrande, Oregon, are performing two hours of classic opera selections.
What: A fundraiser for Oregon's Alpenfest, a family-friendly, polka-crazy, Swiss-yodeling event that takes place in late September (Sept 25-29 for 2014) in Wallowa County, Oregon, a place that comes closer than anyplace in Oregon to looking like the Swiss Alps. The towns of Enterprise, Joseph and Wallowa Lake are all involved in Alpenfest.
When: Friday night, February 28, 2014, 7 pm to 9 pm,
Where: Lear's Main Street Pub & Grill, 111 W. Main Street, Enterprise, OR,
Cost: Admission including dinner is $25 for adults (drinks extra)
Notes: Reservations at Lear's are advised. Phone is (541) 426-3300.
