PYRAMID RESTAURANT & BAR SOMMELIER BRINGS THE VOICES OF LAKESIDE CIVIC CHORUS TO DALLAS
Dallas Monday, October 11, 2010
Dallas – October 11, 2010 – Pyramid Restaurant & Bar sommelier Hunter Hammett is partnering with the Lakeside Civic Chorus for an Italian Wine & Song dinner and silent auction. The event, which came to fruition through Hammett’s involvement with the group during a previous event, celebrates the ensemble’s dedication to providing premier performances, affording opportunities for area students to attend events free of charge and setting up scholarship funds for high school students pursuing music degrees at the university level. Hammett wanted to bring the chorus group to The Fairmont Dallas to showcase the talents of some of its members to an audience that may not hear it otherwise given that most of the chorale’s performances take place in Rockwall, Rowlett and Garland. Hammett and event organizer Shelba Gorham-Bell will frame the event with an Italian theme, complete with dishes like Osso bucco alla Milanese (Braised veal shanks from Milan with saffron risotto) paired by Hammett with Italian wines that will bring out the abounding flavors in Italian cuisine.
In addition to dinner, which will take place in the Brasserie at The Fairmont Dallas, a silent auction will be set up in Pyramid’s Private Dining Room, with all proceeds benefiting the Lakeside Civic Chorus. Auctioned items include a week-long stay at a private residence in Costa Rica, various wine baskets, tickets to a Dallas Maverick’s basketball game and various art and jewelry. The price is $75 per person and reservations can be made by contacting Jennifer Durham, Catering Coordinator, at 214-720-5295.
