La Mystique de Paris
Submitted By Music at the Mission
Each year, classical chamber music presenter Music at the Mission honors a member of the Tri-City Community who has worked towards building a thriving music and arts scene through their support and commitment to local arts organizations. This yearÕs honorees are Mission Coffee Roasting Company founders, Gael Stewart and her husband, the late Don Stewart, who have been longtime champions of the arts in the Tri-City Area as well as San Jose through their passionate commitment to and generous support of arts organizations including Fremont Symphony, Fremont Opera, and Music at the Mission. The honor ceremony will take place during the annual Mission Masquerade Ball, ÒLa Mystique de Paris,Ó on Friday, April 25 at the Hilton Hotel in Newark.
ÒAlmost since the first year that Music at the Mission began presenting classical chamber music concerts at Old Mission San Jose, Gael and Don have been there, helping us build a greater following and visibility in the community. Our post-concert receptions are exclusively held at Mission Coffee, and Gael continues to cater each of our Salon Series afternoon concerts,Ó says Music at the Mission founding director, Aileen Chanco. ÒFor many years, both Gael and Don have been the epitome of hospitality and are true champions of the community in the way that they have worked passionately towards building a thriving music and arts scene.Ó
The annual Mission Masquerade Ball is a benefit for Music at the Mission, whose 10th Season is approaching in the fall of 2014, a milestone for any organization. Proceeds from this ball will help support and sustain Music at the Mission as it continues to bring bold classical chamber music programs "outside the box" to Bay Area music lovers, through its regular evening concert performances at Old Mission San Jose in Fremont, its Salon Series and Music al Fresca afternoon performances and its Educational Outreach Performance Programs to Tri-City schools.
