On Thursday, 7th June, the fourteen ladies of Yale University's senior women's a cappella choral group Whim 'n Rhythm will perform at River Market restaurant in a free concert to benefit the Children's Projects of CMIRC. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. and is proceeded by a Special Recognition Dinner where CMIRC will honor members of the community who have helped to make our Children's Projects a success. Members of CMIRC are invited to join in this dinner and enjoy a very special menu for just 400 baht. Social time begins at 5:30 pm, with appetizers served at 5:45 pm and dinner at 6 p.m.
After dinner, the Honored Guests will enjoy front row V.I.P. seating for the concert. We'll arrange for special seating for the CMIRC members who have come for the dinner. If you aren't able to come to the dinner ahead of the concert, you're welcome to enjoy the free concert at 7:30 p.m. and order from River Market restaurant's regular menu. Reservations directly to the restaurant are suggested if you don't plan to dine at the Rotary table. 053 234 493 
Here is the menu for the CMIRC Special Recognition Dinner:

During the intermission of the concert, CMIRC officers will have a chance to talk to the audience about our Children's Projects and we'll take the hungry wicker elephants Chok Dee (pictured above left) and his sister Jai Dee on a walk through the crowd to collect their dinner of donations.  
The visit of Whim 'n Rhythm to Chiang Mai is sponsored by CMIRC and River Market Restaurant as part of their post-graduation, eight-week World Tour. While in Chiang Mai, they will also perform at the Northern School for the Blind and Dok Kaew Assisted Living Center and McKean Rehabilitation Center. They'll have some free time, too, to entertain and be entertained by the elephants at the Maetaeng Elephant Park.
