Saturday, April 22, 6 pm, Hilton Norfolk The Main

Joyce Strelitz, of blessed memory, and the Virginia Opera are forever linked. A long-time member of the Opera’s leadership, Strelitz served as chair of the state-wide board of directors and also, for many years, guided the efforts of numerous fundraising and special event initiatives.

In recognition of Strelitz’s commitment to Virginia Opera, the 2017 Opera Gala will be dedicated to her with a musical tribute honoring her many decades of loyal service and support.

This black-tie celebration at downtown Norfolk’s newest destination, will begin with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by a seated dinner with wine pairings. The musical selections will include some of Strelitz’s Opera and Broadway favorites. Strictly Bizzness Band caps off the evening with dancing and nightcaps.

Proceeds from the Gala support Virginia Opera’s award-winning education and outreach programs that travel throughout the Commonwealth bringing opera activities and performances to more than 120,000 students each year.

Tickets for the Opera Gala are $250 per person. For more information, contact Lisa Domingo Sands at 757-213-4554.
