EVENT DETAILS

Friday, November 3 at 6 pm

SPECIAL GUESTS MAESTRO ECKART PREU AND THOMAS HAMPSON

You are invited to join us as we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the restoration of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Originally a movie theater, it opened in 1931. The theater was the largest and most modern in Spokane, but with the rise of suburban cinemas in the 1970s, it witnessed a gradual decline. Unwilling to see such a historical treasure demolished, a city-wide effort was led by the Spokane Symphony to lovingly restore The Fox to its former Art Deco splendor in 2007.

Thomas Hampson performed at the grand reopening of The Fox in 2007, and the world-renowned, Grammy Award-winning baritone is coming back to the theater to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its restoration at the gala. Born in Spokane and an alum of EWU, Hampson is hailed as “America’s Leading Baritone” and the “Ambassador of American Song.”

The gala will include:

  • a catered dinner and drinks
  • a video presentation on The Fox restoration
  • a live auction
  • a short performance by Thomas Hampson 

 

Proceeds will go to support the Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.
