About the Event
Performing all music styles with panache and a sense of humor, A Touch of Class is known for their fresh interpretations of your favorites and soaring melodies in their originals. Violinist/fiddler/vocalist, Tracy La Guardia, and cellist/banjoist/vocalist Nick Rossi, performed country and bluegrass with the Trailriders—a fun group started by Tracy's dad—for many years which included two very successful European tours. Both Tracy and pianist/accordionist/vocalist and Oakes native, Deborah Schmit-Lobis, have toured with noted Tenor Andrea Bocelli and cumulatively, the trio members have appeared with luminaries such as Led Zeppelin, Linda Ronstadt, Kenny Rogers, Bob Hope, Peter Gabriel, Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Buble, and Sarah Brightman to name a few. These musicians have worlds of experience between them and we get to enjoy them right in Oakes!
Tracy is also a sommelier and will be sharing her passion for and knowledge of wines with us for this event! We'll be tasting hand-selected vintages from Spain, Italy, France, and Germany while enjoying music that inspires a connection to those countries. We'll also hear from Roberta Forward about her grape-growing journey here in North Dakota and get to visit with her daughter, Tamara Franscioni, who, with her husband's family, partakes in a viticulture and winemaking business in the Santa Lucia Highlands in California.
We don't get opportunities like this often right here at home, so don't delay! Get your tickets and make sure to be a part of this amazing event!
Just kidding! They're ALL VIP because we're only selling 50 of them and if you want to get in on this action, you have to act fast!
