A special donor reception will be held  prior to the concert. A highlight of the reception will be artwork by Misha Lenn, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning artist who has developed a very distinctive style of water color painting. The influences of Klimt, Degas, Renoir, Monet and Toulouse Lautrec are recognizable in Lenn's works as he combines elegant brush strokes with dazzling watercolor.

Impressionism permeates his works. Lenn received his Masters degree from the prestigious Academy of Art and Design in St. Petersburg. He has had numerous solo exhibitions and his watercolor paintings can be found in private and museum collections throughout the world. Misha has won numerous awards for his logo designs and watercolors. In 2005 he was named “The Best Watercolor Artist” by ARTV Fine Art Awards in North America.

Proceeds raised will benefit Shaloh House Jewish Day School located on Chestnut Hill Avenue in Brighton. The K-8 school boasts an outstanding and innovative curriculum and its students have won national awards in English, Arts and Sports. Students also have won nine gold medals at the International Math Olympiad and have been placed first in region at the New England Math League. An integral part of the school environment is the Barbara F. Guzovsky Pre-School donated by Mr. Edward Guzovsky in memory of his late wife, Barbara.
