St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley to Host Benefit for Arts Outreach Featuring Francesco Attesti, Matteo Galli

Francesco Attesti
Matteo Galli

St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church invites the public to attend a special benefit concert for Arts Outreach at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, 2016, at the church located at 2901 Nojoqui Avenue in downtown Los Olivos. 

The featured performers are renowned pianist Francesco Attesti and organist Matteo Galli.

Attesti will perform on the church’s magnificent Steinway B grand piano and Galli on the impressive 22-rank Schoenstein organ.

The program includes works by Bach, Brahms, Ravel and Wagner among others.

Attesti and Galli are returning to Los Olivos during an international concert tour from their native Italy. 

Tickets are $20 for general admission and $10 for student admission and are on sale now at the Arts Outreach office, 2353 Hollister Street, Suite A in Los Olivos or by calling 805.688.9533.

Doors at St. Mark’s will open at 2 p.m. for first-come, first-seated admission. Tickets may be available at the door, but the concert is expected to sell-out, so patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.  

After the concert, there will be a reception to meet the talented artists, enjoy conversation, refreshments and a beautiful afternoon in Los Olivos.

The Rev. Dr. Randall Day, St. Mark’s priest and rector remarked, “We are so pleased to welcome back these incredible musicians. They’ve graced us with their talent in 2011, 2013 and 2014 and we’re proud to host them again for their fourth benefit for Arts Outreach — a vital organization in our Santa Ynez Valley cultural life.  

"This concert is a non-religious event, yet I believe that all music and art that enriches people is a gift of God,” Rev. Day said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
