Since 1998, the Knoxville Opera Guild has held an annual martini party to break the winter doldrums. Originally associated with the annual Rossini Festival, the event featured the Rossini Funtini Martini. In recent years, special martinis have been developed to support different themes. For example, the 2007 Martini Party celebrated the Knoxville Opera production of Carmen with a Spanish decor and featured the El Matadore martini. In 2008, the Guild chose to celebrate a fine Irish tradition with a St. Paddy’s Martini Party featuring such special martinis as the Shamrock, the Blarney Stone and the Virgin Leprechaun. In addition to a variety of great martinis, and wines for those that prefer the softer spirits, this event consists of a heavy hors d’oeuvres buffet, a silent auction, and live entertainment.


A fund-raiser for Knoxville Opera Guild supporting Knoxville Opera, Under the Tuscan Moon will take place Saturday evening, June 10, 2017 at the magnificent Villa Collina located on Lyons View Pike.  Let us transport you to Tuscany (during a full moon!) with delicious Italian food by Chef Holly Hambright, musical entertainment and opportunities to win Italian-themed packages.  This will be the first private fund-raiser at the newly-renovated mansion!
