Dance into the New Year with a full symphony orchestra. Once a beloved yearly tradition in the Valley, The Phoenix Symphony brought back the New Year’s Eve Gala in 2017 after a ten-year hiatus as part of their 70th Anniversary Season.
The evening includes a cocktail reception, sumptuous dinner and dancing to the full Phoenix Symphony orchestra. A champagne toast and many other surprises will delight guests during this special celebration. The Phoenix Symphony is honored to announce Sharon and Dr. Oliver “Ollie” Harper as the event’s Honorary Chairs. Sharon is the CEO and co-founder of Plaza Companies and was most recently named “Woman of the Year” by Valley Leadership. In addition to his role as Chair of The Phoenix Symphony’s Board of Directors, Dr. Harper is a family physician with a subspecialty in geriatric medicine and is on faculty at the University of Arizona, College of Medicine Phoenix. Both also received the 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award from Phoenix Theatre.
All proceeds from the New Year’s Eve Gala benefit The Phoenix Symphony’s community outreach and education programs, which bring the joy of music to over 125,000 children and adults in hospitals, homeless shelters, schools and the concert hall each year.
