The Rollin Art Centre’s next Tea on the Terrace happens Thursday, Aug. 8, with musical guests jazz duo Dennis Olsen and Guy Langlois. This performance will feature Latin, popular standards and classic hits, with Olsen and Langlois playing everything from Cole Porter to Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin.
We will be serving our High Tea, with two sweets and two savories served on a tiered plate. Tickets are only $20 for this tea.
These teas are a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, but are also a main fundraiser for the Community Arts Council. Please buy your tickets today to help with much-needed funds that help offset the costs of future programs and maintenance for the grounds and gardens at the Rollin Art Centre.
Check out our Facebook page for a complete list of musicals guests for the summer.
