Sunday, August 5th | 5:00pm | The Hills Estate
The Sara and Austin Hills Estate, Box Canyon, Stag's Leap District
Journey back in time to an exquisite salon where you and a select few patrons of MITV enjoy chamber music, presented in an intimate setting as it was originally intended to be heard.
Sara and Austin Hills welcome us to their estate in Box Canyon, and to their Italian Room, an exquisite 18th century interior formerly in the de Young Museum. Hear the esteemed Escher Quartet play two masterpieces by Franz Schubert surrounding a gem written one hundred years later by Anton Webern.
After the concert, patrons will enjoy sparkling wine and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace, followed by a seated dinner prepared by Nash Cognetti of Tre Posti. Wines by Schramsberg and Grgich Hills.
