Live Arts Maryland Gala 2014

The holidays may be over but the fun goes on! Live Arts Maryland and Music Director J. Ernest Green keep the cheer going with Gala 2014 at the Loews Annapolis Hotel on Saturday, January 25, at 6:30 p.m. Performers Bernard Dotson and Valerie Lemon return to Annapolis after amazing a sold-out crowd at September’s celebration of Marvin Hamlisch. Both Dotson and Lemon are celebrated cabaret performers in New York and now bring their talents to this year’s gala.

The evening also features a silent auction that includes massages, dining coupons, services, wine baskets, artwork and a round of golf and two golf carts at the exclusive Gibson Island Club. Among the items to be auctioned by Mr. Green during the live auction are special experiences only Live Arts Maryland can offer, including the “Maestro for a Night” package that puts the winner on the conductor’s podium in front of the Annapolis Chorale and Chamber Orchestra; an appearance in one of Live Arts Maryland’s Broadway productions; a “build your own” wine cellar and a Wintergreen resort vacation. The open-bar cocktail hour begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by a gourmet dinner prepared by the Loews’ award-winning chefs at 7 p.m.

Tickets for Gala 2014 are $125/person. Tickets must be purchased by January 21 and are available online at or by calling 410-263-1906. Dress is formal and fun is guaranteed. All proceeds from the event benefit the Annapolis Chorale and the other performing ensembles and presented concerts of Live Arts Maryland. Please call 410-263-1906 for additional information.
