Gala Dinner 2017

MOR Gala Evening

Celebrating MOR’s 19th season and world premieres of two new commissions!

Sunday, May 21, 2017 7:00 p.m. 
Norcliffe Founders Room, Benaroya Hall
(following MOR's spring concert: Ceija - concert start time 5 p.m. - concert tickets sold separately)
Join us for an elegant Gala Evening celebrating MOR's 19th season. The Gala will immediately follow the world premieres of MOR’s newest commissions by composer Mary Kouyoumdjian and choreographer Olivier Wevers. The evening will include a cocktail hour with hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction, followed by a formal dinner and special program. You’ll also have a rare chance to view original works by Austrian-Romani artist Ceija Stojka, who survived three concentration camps to become a noted painter and writer. Her amazing story is the inspiration for Kouyoumdjian’s work.
MOR's "Testimonies for Tomorrow" program has launched over 20 Holocaust-inspired works by today's leading composers since its founding in 1998. Your attendance and generous support help sustain our legacy of remembering through music.
