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.
