The Spring Garden Luncheon

A beautiful day to be outdoors!
Such a lovely placesetting!!
Our hostess, Patrice Tedescko, with dishes that look as beautiful as they are delicious!!

On Friday, April 9th, several supporters of The Opera Society gathered at the home of Patrice Tedescko and Robert Ferencik for a lovely Spring Garden Luncheon. With a glass of champagne or lemonade, we chatted on her patio overlooking the water.  We then enjoyed a sumptuous luncheon at the umbrellaed tables with beautiful floral dinnerware.  Patrice served a family recipe: individual egg and ham pies.  For dessert, we enjoyed another of her family treats, a shortbread cake with cream and blueberries.  We could not have been happier!

We then retired to her living room for a musical treat.  Robert, an accomplished pianist, accompanied soprano, Julie Todaro.  Julie is a life-long member of the Young Patronesses of the Opera and her mother founded the In-School Opera program.  We enjoyed a lovely program of Cole Porter melodies, Randall Thompson’s The Road Not Taken and Steven Schwartz’s Defying Gravity.  

We were delighted with the afternoon! Patrice surprised us with a lovely favor to take home!  Enjoy the photos!
