Brooks Pierce hosted and sponsored a thematic dinner, performance and fundraising event in support of The United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County at its Raleigh office on Nov.1.
The United Arts Council’s annual three-day series, called “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” featured several evenings of unique and entertaining dinners in support of the Artists in Schools program, a dynamic initiative that strives to integrate arts into education. The program benefits over 150 schools in Wake County and promotes nearly 147,000 hours of programming each year.
The Brooks Pierce-sponsored dinner featured a performance from William Wolfram, a Julliard-trained concert pianist and chamber musician who has performed alongside numerous world-renowned orchestras. Wolfram performed on a limited edition Bösendorfer Butterfly Piano, provided by Ruggero Piano of Raleigh.
The event also included a description of the piano’s history and inspired artistic design, along with a guided art tour of the office led by the artists themselves. The tour included discussion from Max Diaz, a local artist whose paintings, entitled La Esquina Caliente (the Hot Corner) and La Model (the Model), are featured in the Brooks Pierce Raleigh office.
