“The Alderson Allen Songbook” Concert to benefit SAAC
February 12, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm$3 – $42475
Music, art, and education will have a treat in store at “The Alderson Allen Songbook,” a concert and educational fundraiser at the SAAC. Scheduled for Saturday, February 12 at 6:30 p.m., the black-tie event will be headlined by the first-ever public performance of Amy Allen and Ed Alderson, whose musical stylings range from American standards to rock and roll royalty. The festive event was conceived by the duo, both lifelong musicians and El Dorado natives, as a fundraiser for SAAC’s Arts in Education outreach. The evening will begin with a drinks and hors d’oeuvres party in the Merkle and Price Galleries at 6:30. Guests will be treated to a tempting menu of savory and sweets created by Upper Crust Catering, along with wine, beer, and a signature cocktail, while mingling with friends amidst the original artwork of the Viewfinder Photography exhibition. At 7:30, the concert will begin with opening act Mason Halstead and Carmelo Brown, both students at El Dorado High School who grew up performing and learning at SAAC. After a brief intermission, Amy and Ed will take the stage for their musical collaboration. The night will be a true artistic first, and an unprecedented opportunity to see this dynamic pair in action, while also supporting SAAC’s educational programs.
