On Saturday, April 25, Kent State University’s Hugh A. Glauser School of Music is holding its annual benefit “An Evening with the Orchestra” in the Kent Student Center Ballroom. Open to the public, this annual event serves the School of Music well by raising much-needed scholarship money for the music students.

Serving as the Orchestra's annual fundraiser, this Gala Celebration features an evening of cocktails, dinner, dancing and, of course, the KSU Orchestra. Guests will get to experience a presentation by the winner of the Conduct-the-Orchestra auction during the 8 p.m. program titled "Orchestral Ovations." The evening will also include opportunities for guests to sponsor student scholarships.

Cocktails begin at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., "Orchestral Ovations" program at 8 p.m. and dancing at 9:30 p.m. To top off the evening, Chas Baker and the KSU Jazz Ensemble will play for the guests' dancing and listening pleasure.

Tickets are $50 per person, with $25 being tax-deductible.  For tickets please call Maryalice Seaholts at 330-673-3038 or the School of Music at 330-672-2172.
