Vail Bravo!: A midsummer night’s gala

Daily staff report
Vail CO Colorado

VAIL – The Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival presents the 23rd annual Gala Saturday in the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. This year’s event will feature all the magic of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” in a tent just steps from the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction. Dinner, dancing and a live auction begin at 8 p.m., immediately following the New York Philharmonic’s concert at the amphitheater. Guests can enjoy live music and entertainment by Colorado’s Nacho Men, dinner from the valley’s finest restaurants and festive cocktails.

All proceeds from both the silent and live auctions benefit Bravo’s Music Matters education and outreach programs. This year’s auction items include a cello signed by Yo-Yo Ma, a guest conductorship with the New York Philharmonic, unique travel packages and artwork.
