Guests are transported back in time to Manhattan’s legendary jazz club, Birdland, to experience the life and times of jazz great and bebop innovator, Charlie Parker. Enjoy one-night-only musical experiences in Seattle Opera’s state-of-the-art Opera Center, and dine on stage at McCaw Hall amid the set of Charlie Parker’s Yardbird. Bid on special opera experiences at the Live Auction or pick your favorite when you win the Golden Raffle.
Sip on cocktails, strike a pose in the photo booth, and enjoy performances by jazz vocalist Gail Pettis and participants in our Teen Vocal Studio during the reception. Local musicians with JazzEd set the tone at dinner on stage as KIRO 7’s Deborah Horne plays emcee and Freddie Ballentine, who plays Charlie Parker in the opera, joins in the fun. The Big After Party includes music and dancing with the Thomas Marriott Quintet and DJ Mixx America.
