Crossroads residents can indulge in quiche, crepes and bloody marys to the songs of the Dave Scher Trio at a Jazz Brunch benefiting the Victoria Fine Arts Association at the Victoria Country Club from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday.
“We’re trying to bring unique musical experiences to Victoria, and people have expressed interest in attending events like this,” said Kate Garcia, Arts Association president. “So there is a want and a need for events like this jazz brunch where people can enjoy music that is not your typical Friday night band.”
Dave Scher trained at Berklee College of Music and plays jazz, rock and blues. Texas Music Hall of Fame inductee Van Wilks said Scher is “one of the best guitar players I’ve ever heard,” according to Scher’s website.
Angela Weaver, arts association board member, learned about the jazz trio from another Austin musician, Jeff Plankenhorn, who plays regularly at her Weaver House concerts.
The Victoria Country Club will prepare a special brunch buffet for the event and bloody marys, mimosas, wine and beer will be available at a cash bar.
The event is open to the public, seating is open and tickets, $35 each, are available on the website and Facebook. Ticket purchases secure reservations, and limited tickets will be sold at the door based on availability.
Proceeds will go toward community outreach in the form of scholarships and donations that support music and arts education in Victoria. For example, last year, the association donated $3,500 to purchase a permanent music exhibit for the Children’s Discovery Museum.
