The Birmingham Music Club (BMC) will celebrate its 105th year by hosting a gala and presenting BRAVO! Birmingham to showcase widely recognized performers with local roots.
In 2011, the BMC turns its spotlight on home-grown performers whose talents have brought them national and international recognition.
The anniversary celebration includes two events: a black tie gala Jan. 28 at 7 p.m. at Birmingham Country Club and the BRAVO! Birmingham show March 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Samford University’s Wright Center.
Ticket prices, beginning at $125, cover both events.
For information and reservations for the gala, call Martha Black at 969-3556. Prices for tickets to the show begin at $20 with group ticket prices available. Show tickets may be purchased after Dec. 1 by calling the Wright Center Box Office at 726-2407.
The gala includes a cocktail reception, seated dinner, live auction and entertainment by BRAVO! performers. Live auction items include an “April in Paris” trip to an ancestral home near Paris, a week’s vacation in Hilton Head, S.C., golf rounds at top courses in town, a week at a New Hampshire lake home, box seats for football games, a dinner for 12 catered by Sherron Goldstein, jewelry from Barton-Clay Fine Jewelers and more.
An individual Patron ticket for the dinner in January is $125 and also entitles the holder to attend the show in March. Junior Patron tickets are $80, with a limited number available.
Other ticket levels, which include special amenities for additional guests, are Bronze ($500) and Silver ($1,000). Corporate tickets for tables of eight are $2,500 (Gold) and $5,000 (Platinum).
All proceeds from the dinner and the show benefit the BMC Concert Series and BMC Guild Music Scholarship Fund.
Marsha Drennen and Jeanne Bradford are co-chairmen for both events.
After the show, patrons are invited to have coffee and gourmet desserts with the stars on the Wright Center mezzanine.
