Thanks for the support of the CVAC concert


The Carson Valley Arts Council recently hosted its third concert, a performance by steel-string acoustic guitarist, Beppe Gambetta. We thank our sponsors: Tahoe Ridge Winery & Marketplace for the wine and appetizers; Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department; Town of Minden; Syncon Homes; Historian Inn for Beppe’s lodging; Sweetie Pies by Wendy Smith for the dessert; DR Design’s Doug Reynolds for the artwork and arranging Beppe’s visit; Carson Tahoe Music’s Mike Hildum live sound engineer; Stockdale Creative Marketing and Advertising; R&S Optimum Offset; and The Record-Courier for coverage of our event.

There are others, too numerous to mention who have lent encouragement, expertise and elbow grease to our dream of converting the old Copeland lumber building into a performing art center. We are grateful to all of you, to the many wonderful people who attended the concert, and to all who donated money and/or became official members of the Carson Valley Arts Council Our next event will feature the Argenta Trio, a classical ensemble from UNR featuring John Lenz on cello, Philip Ruder on violin, and James Winn on piano. It will take place at the CVIC Hall at 6 p.m. April 7; we hope to see you there.
