`Til Dawn 2010

`Til Dawn Director Austin Willacy will receive a 2010 Avanti Award from the Joseph and Frances Brucia Foundation. Granted in the field of performing and visual arts, the Avanti Awards enable outstanding artists to pursue their dreams. Austin’s award will provide much-needed scholarship funds for `Til Dawn students.
The 2010 Avanti Awards will be presented on Friday, January 15 at a dinner celebration at the Mill Valley Community Center with `Til Dawn performing. Tickets are required.
Earlier the same evening, `Til Dawn will open a performance at 142 Throckmorton by Austin and his award-winning a cappella rock band The House Jacks.
Initiated in 2007, the Avanti Awards carry forward a Brucia family legacy of support for the arts. Giuseppe Brucia, in his desire to bring opera to San Francisco, generously financed the founding of the San Francisco Opera in 1919. Years later, Joseph and Frances Brucia funded the first free simulcast of the San Francisco Opera in Civic Center Park.
