The 20th annual SCV Wine Classic will get under way tonight from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the Main Gallery at California Institute of the Arts, 24700 McBean Parkway in Valencia.

The event features a large collection of current and vintage wines for tasting and purchase, as well as a wide assortment of gourmet cuisine from some of the area's finest restaurants and caterers.

"The Wine Classic attracts people who have a passion for experiencing fine wine and great food in an intimate social setting because they get all of that and more," said Sue Bozman, the event's executive co-director.

"Best of all, the event serves as the major fundraiser of the year for the SCV Youth Orchestra, which allows young people who share a passion for music to participate in a dynamic, vibrant orchestra," she said. "It's truly an amazing program."

The SCV Youth Orchestra, a three-tiered instrumental education program founded at California Institute of the Arts in 1969 and moved to College of the Canyons in 1989, provides a positive and creative outlet for promising young musicians throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.

Guests of the Wine Classic will be able to sample, mingle, socialize and enjoy live orchestral music while an impeccable array of rare and current wines, restaurant certificates and other gift items are auctioned off. In addition, all guests will receive souvenir drinking glasses and trays.

A limited number of tickets will be available for purchase at the door during the event. At-the-door prices are $80 each and $150 a pair. Tickets for designated drivers are $35 each.
