We are pleased that the very talented Altenbach family is returning to present a special Christmas program. Composer and classical violinist, Richard Altenbach, performs currently as Concertmaster of Auburn Symphony and InConcert Sierra. He has been featured locally as a chamber musician and as soloist for Music in the Mountains, InConcert Sierra, and the Apollo Arts Ensemble. Richard has performed live on the Academy Awards and The Tonight Show, and has collaborated with Frank Sinatra, YoYo Ma, Barbra Streisand, Mannheim Steamroller and Puff Daddy among many others. His beautiful and talented wife Dawn and son Bren (who recently played “James” in James and the Giant Peach) will sing. This is sure to be a great program so join your friends and get into the holiday spirit!

Table Reservation Policy for the December Luncheon

All attendees will have assigned seating.

You may create a group from two to eight people for this event, a maximum of eight per table. For reservations with fewer than eight, your table will be completed with other members.

There are two ways to make table reservations for your group:

1) The Head Person for your group collects all the checks (made out to Newcomers Club in the correct amount) and lists what each person wants for lunch either on the lower left-hand corner of each check or on a group list. Paperclip the checks together and place in an envelope.

OR,

2) The Head Person for your group may write one check for everyone in the group and provide a list of attendees along with each of their lunch requests.

Please ensure that each person’s meal choice is noted on the checks or on your list of tablemates.

If you wish to make a single reservation, submit your check made out to Newcomers Club and write your luncheon choice on the bottom of your check. You will be welcomed by our reservations team at the luncheon and given a seat that has been pre-assigned to you.
