Celebrate the Boise Philharmonic's 50th Birthday With the Chef and Gourmet Gala 

Friday, March 16

Boise Philharmonic turns 50 this year and is slip-sliding into the celebration with a vodka luge ice sculpture. Needless to say, this frosty wonder will be a few steps classier than a shot-ski. Sure, it's not what you'd expect from the 18th annual Chef and Gourmet Gala, the philharmonic's once-a-year fundraiser, but that's part of the fun.

Black-tie attire and cocktails are the beginnings of a good night, but on Friday, March 16, Boise Philharmonic will pepper in a five-course meal, five wines from around the world and entertainment from Verde Percussion, Boise Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the College of Idaho's Langroise Trio to create an evening of memorable greatness.

Fundraisers like this gala provide 60 percent of the orchestra's budget. The $100,000 raised last year financed educational programs throughout the valley, like free music programs in elementary schools.

Almost 150 items are listed for live, silent and Internet auction, including offerings from Hendrickson's Fine Jewelry, a bronze sculpture of conductor Robert Franz's hands and the six-month lease of a Mercedes C Class.
