The Newport Orchestra Program would like to invite you to attend a night of music and dance at our annual fundraising event, Ballet Knights!
Newport High School Orchestra is delighted to collaborate with Evergreen City Ballet on a brand-new production based on the beloved fairy tale Hansel & Gretel, created and choreographed by Jennifer Porter, an award-winning choreographer and retired PNB dancer. This original ballet will feature the Newport High School Chamber Orchestra and dancers from Evergreen City Ballet. The unique collaboration between Newport and ECB provides young musicians and dancers with the experience of working together on a live show, resulting in a wonderfully artistic production that’s sure to enchant audiences of all ages.
Two performances of Hansel and Gretel will be presented at Newport High School Performing Arts Center at 7:00pm on Saturday, May 13th, and 2:00pm on Sunday, May 14th. Tickets are 25 dollars for adults and 10 dollars for students and are available at Bellevue School District Box Office by following this link: https://bsd405.hometownticketing.com/embed/all?schools=14
In addition, we will host an online auction prior to the show. Of course, there will be plenty of fabulous gourmet desserts to enjoy, and admission to the auction before the show is free! Please follow this link to cast your bid on the auction items: https://sono-newport.com/ballet-knights-auctions/.
All of the money raised will go to support the Newport Orchestra Program by providing sectional coaching, financial assistance for trips, instrument maintenance, and everything else related to helping students learn about and enjoy music.
We hope you will join us at 7pm on Saturday, May13, or 2:00pm on Sunday, May 14!
Thank you for your continued support of the NHS Orchestra program!
