Speight Celebration Concert and Dinner
Saturday, August 9, 2014
Join us for an extraordinary concert honoring the 30-year tenure of our beloved General Director Speight Jenkins and celebrating Seattle Opera’s 50th Anniversary. Accompanied by the Seattle Opera Chorus and members of Seattle Symphony Orchestra, many of Seattle Opera’s best-loved singers will pay tribute to Speight in concert at McCaw Hall.
Scheduled to appear:
Mary Elizabeth Williams
A festive, black-tie reception and gourmet dinner for Speight and these spectacular singers will immediately follow the performance. Dinner guests will meet artists and have the chance to personally wish Speight well as he retires from his role as General Director of Seattle Opera. You won't want to miss this momentous evening celebrating Seattle Opera's past and setting the stage for another incredible 50 years.
