The Tuesday Musical 125th Anniversary Gala was held Sept. 7 on the main stage of E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall on The University of Akron campus.
For the past 125 years, Tuesday Musical has brought world-class performers to Akron, including Vladimir Horowitz, Luciano Pavarotti, Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma, Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell, Wynton Marsalis and The Cleveland Orchestra. Celebrating the past and looking toward the future, guests enjoyed spectacular music and a feast provided by A Taste of Excellence.
The event co-chairs were Mary Ann Jackson and Dan Dahl. Barbara Feld, Tuesday Musical’s recently retired executive director, served as the gala’s honorary chair.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Tuesday Musical’s concert and educational programs. During the gala, the group announced the establishment of the Barbara A. Feld Educational Experience Fund of the Akron Community Foundation. This fund will provide continuing support for Tuesday Musical’s Master Classes and outreach opportunities for students in our region.
