Friends of Garfield Orchestra presents the 20th ANNUAL WINTER WALTZ
Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby
Join the award-winning GARFIELD ORCHESTRA at Benaroya Hall for an elegant evening of ballroom dancing to live waltz music performed by the Garfield High School orchestras, under the baton of Marcus Tsutakawa. At the Winter Waltz, you may "dance the night away" on a large, wooden floor, specially installed to create a magnificent ballroom. Or you may simply listen to the beautiful music, watch and mingle, and enjoy leisurely conversation along with refreshments in this elegant venue.
Our special guest performers will be from the Northwest Dance Network, performing classic waltzes and perhaps even a tango or two. Dave Beck of KUOW-FM, a big supporter of Garfield Orchestras, will be master of ceremonies. Desserts and drinks - non-alcoholic, wine and beer - will be available, and there will also be a raffle for prizes. Winners will be drawn and announced during the evening.
Tickets are available from Friends of Garfield Orchestra:
Both general admission and reserved table seating is available.
Note: This event is presented by Friends of Garfield Orchestra (FOGO). Benaroya Hall and Seattle Symphony are not presenters of this event. All prices subject to change.
