Every August for the past five years, the Symphony Guild has organized a tour of some of Flagstaff’s most beautiful homes. This year’s tour will take place on Saturday, Aug. 17 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Ticket holders may visit five homes, plus the historic Church of the Epiphany on Beaver Street. The houses are scattered around Flagstaff, allowing visitors and Flagstaffians alike to explore different parts of the beautiful mountain town. Musicians will be playing in each home and the church will have a raffle of some arts and crafts treasures.
This is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Symphony Guild, which supports the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, which will enter its 70th year this fall. Tickets will include a map and driving directions. You can purchase a ticket the day of the event with cash or check at the Epiphany Church, 432 N Beaver Street. To get an advance ticket, call Mary (928) 522-0549, Connie (630) 258-2999 or Ellen (928) 637-5174.
