Season Finale Brunch at Alpha Omega

Alpha Omega’s annual barbeque brunch has become a favorite tradition at Festival Napa Valley.

Robin and Michelle Baggett, consummate hosts, embody a warm and heartfelt approach to appreciating the finer things in life. They effortlessly make visitors to their modern-ranch style Rutherford estate feel like family.

Today they invite guests to enjoy a relaxed afternoon of food, wine, and music. Robin will be manning the grill and masterfully roasting a whole hog for this unforgettable lunch, replete with Alpha Omega’s phenomenal wines.

Celebrated pianist and 2022 Classical Woman of the Year Lara Downes is joined by a quintet exploring music from her new chart-topping album Reflections: Scott Joplin Reconsidered.  Revered as The King of Ragtime, Joplin was in fact much more – an innovator who merged traditions and histories to make music at the crossroads of the American future.

Pianist Lara Downes has been called “an explorer whose imagination is fired by bringing notice to the underrepresented and forgotten” (The Log Journal). An iconoclast and trailblazer, her dynamic work as a sought-after performer, a Billboard Chart-topping recording artist, a producer, curator, activist, and arts advocate positions her as a cultural visionary on the national arts scene.
