NEW YEAR'S EVE DANCE CARD
On New Year’s Eve 2004, then-Music Director Designate David
Robertson threw a musical surprise party for nearly 2,700 guests—that
is a sold-out Powell Symphony Hall. The evening’s entertainment
was kept a secret: What would be played? Who would appear? No
one in the audience knew until they were handed their “Dance
Card.” David took the stage and the grand night began. If you
were there, you talked about it well into the New Year. If you
weren’t, you heard about it. And this year? The only way to
find out is to be here.
