Symphony Swing, the Symphony in the Valley’s gala, will be presented at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 7, at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs; and at 4 p.m. Sunday, March 8, at Grand Valley High School in Parachute.

The gala events feature the full orchestra and the Symphony in the Valley Jazz Ensemble playing top tunes from the Big Band era, with a variety of guest vocalists, including Jeannie Walla, Debbie Dawson and the ensemble Mixed Emotions.

Kelly Thompson of Rifle will share the conductor’s podium with co-conductors Carlos Elias and John Bokram.

The Glenwood Springs event is a swanky dinner dance, with a full-course meal and a cash bar in the Devereux Room at the posh Hotel Colorado. Tickets are $65 per person, $800 for a premium table for 10.

The Parachute event will be more casual, with light refreshments, bistro-style table seating and dancing in the auditorium-cafeteria at Grand Valley High School. Tickets are $15 per person.

A live auction will be held between the two music sets at both events.

Seating is limited for both events, and tickets are now available. Call 285-3548, or order tickets online at http://www.symphonyswing.com.
