A native of Brazil, Cunha is the winner of several competitions and has appeared as a soloist with many symphony and chamber orchestras as well as on Brazilian television.

  • Steve Custer was a cellist and soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. During his 36-year tenure with the orchestra, he played over 4,000 concerts and worked under four music directors at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the new Walt Disney Concert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, and on tour.

That said, you must come to this event because The Great Wicomico Oyster Company (TGWOC) will be on-site, preparing/selling various oyster options to pair with our wines. Our wrap-around porch is a cozy and picturesque spot to enjoy both.

We look forward to having you come by for local oysters, great wine, and to learn lots about oysters.

This has become a popular annual event, and we’re pleased TOGA and TGWOC are returning.
