Riverwalk Society Orchestra plays music from the 30's.
The San Antonio Museum of Art celebrates its 30th anniversary at the Museum’s Annual Gala held on Thursday, February 24, 2011. Our new Riverwalk Society Orchestra will perform for the evening’s festivities.
This wonderful ensemble features 13 musicians including a jazz rhythm section, horns, acoustic guitar, violins, harp, cello and two singers. The theme for the Gala is the 1930's. In keeping with that theme the society orchestra will play hits from that wonderful era. Pieces include: Puttin' On The Ritz, Cherokee, Moonlight Serenade, Cheek To Cheek, In The Mood, and many other wonderful songs. The orchestra will be set up on a two tier bandstand, and the decor will evocate a 1930's night club. There will be dinner, dancing and fabulous music.
The event is being designed by the talented group at The Events Company, led by Richard Flowers. Complimenting the decor will be the fabulous flavors of The RK Group who will be serving our guests an enticing menu that is sure to satisfy any palette. The gala committee is working hard to create an atmosphere that will be exciting and memorable.
