The evening will feature raffle packages and high dollar silent auction items, including a recording session at Echo Mountain Recording Studios, and Orange Peel concert tickets.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Asheville Music School’s operations, mission, and programs, particularly the school’s growing outreach and scholarship programs.
Tickets to the event are $15 in advance and $18 at the door; $7 for children under 12; and free for ages 2 and younger. Advance tickets may be purchased on the Isis website at isisasheville.com, or in person at Asheville Music School. Attendees are encouraged to enjoy fine dining at Isis prior to the show; a portion of dinner sales will be donated to AMS. Dinner reservations are recommended and may be made by calling Isis at (828) 575-2737.
Sound Effects was created to raise money for the Paul Thorpe Music Education Fund and Sound Education Outreach program, as well as the AMS operating budget necessary to keep those programs running. The benefit concert showcases the incredible talent of AMS teachers and students. The event has grown every year, with the 2016 event raising nearly $13,000. We have a goal of reaching $20,000 in 2017.
