By Hailey Chapman Hays Daily News
The Salina Symphony Orchestra presents an evening of “good old-fashioned fun and frivolity” with their Jass Era Garden Party, taking place February 19.
The event takes place at the Salina Country Club, with 1920s music, exclusive cocktails, live and silent auctions and an elegant dinner.
Dinner options include fish, beef or a vegetarian option.
The evening will feature performances by Irving Berlin and George Gershwin of the Salina Symphony Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Dr. David Littrell. The highlight of the evening will be the concert which perfectly sums up the atmosphere of the 1920s.
Suggested attire includes spring and 1920s style; these looks can be emulated with flapper dresses, floral prints, bold hats, beading and lace.
The event is sponsored by Artful Parties and Events. Tickets are available $75 per person and can be purchased from the Salina Symphony Office, 785-823-8309 or at http://www.salinasymphony.org/main/denise-blehm/symphony-gala/.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for the start of the cocktail hour and silent auction. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., followed by the concert and live auction.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Symphony and Youth Education Program. Reservations must be made by February 4.
