Salisbury Symphony’s Big Band Bash set for Jan. 10

Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society

 

Here’s looking at you, Kid!” This often-quoted remark was uttered by Humphrey Bogart in the classic film, “Casablanca.” “Casablanca” is the inspiration for this year’s Big Band Bash fundraiser, and this Big Band Bash may be the most amazing one yet! “Bogey” is rumored to be among the guests, and David Hagy has hired the “Andrews Sisters” to accompany his band!

The annual fundraiser is set for Saturday, Jan. 10 (snow date is Jan. 17), beginning at 7:30 p.m. in Hedrick Auditorium at Catawba College. Tickets are $75 each, and tables for eight may be reserved for a sponsorship of $1,000.00.

As in years past, the gala begins with a sit-down concert of big band bash music in Hedrick Auditorium, followed by dancing, hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, and more music in the Crystal Lounge.

The menu is a special one, conceived by Ms. Vivian Ray, Director of Livingstone College’s Hospitality Management & Culinary Arts program. Ms. Ray researched the menus of the time and has created delicacies that would have pleased the guests at Rick’s Café in Istanbul those many years ago.

Attire for the event is black tie optional although white dinner jackets are also encouraged. The Big Band Bash co-chairs are Jim and Betty Carli, and the committee includes Betsy Rich, Henry Buck, Symphony Board member Sidney Sessoms, and Symphony executive director Linda Jones. Proceeds from this event go to support the concerts and music education activities of the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra.

Want to attend this year’s “bash”? Purchase tickets by calling the symphony office at 704-637-4314, or by PayPal on the Symphony’s website: salisburysymphony.org
