Virtuoso Strings Long Beach
Time: 8:00 PM to 8:00 PM
To open the new season, with the purchase of the evening's ticket there will be a special complimentary dinner hosted by an anonymous supporter of Long Beach. The dinner will be a prelude to the concert, and will start at 6:30 PM at Bogarts & Co, located underneath the Beverly O'Neill. Start the evening with small plates of chef-inspired cuisine and celebrate the beauty of Baroque Music.
