The beautiful Orchard Inn will host this fundraiser for the Saluda Depot, which is trying to preserve the historic train station in town. Delicious complimentary hors d’oeuvres are included. Drinks also available at the cash bar.

AmiciMusic is an Asheville-based chamber music organization that has been providing top quality entertainment in the region for over five years. Their mission is to perform in intimate venues and non-traditional spaces and to break down barriers between performers and audience by setting up a relaxed and informal atmosphere at all their concerts.

Led by pianist and Artistic Director Daniel Weiser, who gives short talks at each program about the music, this concert will also feature singers Amanda Horton and Jonathan Ross who both live in the Asheville area and have performed extensively for the Asheville Lyric Opera as well as numerous other musical organizations in the region. Dr. Weiser is a former U.S. Artistic Ambassador of Music who has performed around the world in over 20 countries including Thailand, Egypt, Pakistan, France, and Brazil.

This will be AmiciMusic’s first program in the Saluda area. The Orchard Inn at 100 Orchard Inn Lane will be hosting and offering some delicious hors d’oeuvres as well as a full cash bar. A portion of the cost goes to the Saluda Historic Depot.

The views will be exquisite, the food incredible, the atmosphere cozy, and the music superb. Seating will be limited and reservations are required.  For more information, please visit amicimusic.org and click on the Upcoming Concerts in the Asheville area.
