The Sitka Summer Music Festival would like to thank the community of Anchorage for such a warm welcome during our 2019 Alaska Airlines Winter Classics concert series. We were thrilled to present the Attacca Quartet this past weekend. We couldn't have done it without the support of Alaska Airlines, the UAA Music Department, the National Endowment for the Arts, Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, Atwood Foundation, Spenard Roadhouse, CRUSH Wine Bistro & Cellar, South Restaurant + Coffeehouse, and friends like you. We're grateful for your enthusiastic support of our organization and classical music in Alaska! ... See MoreSee Less
