The SSO in Big Band mode: the Constellation Ball Fri, May 9, Grand Ballroom at Sam's Town

Drink, dine and dance the night away to the sounds of the Shreveport Symphony, says the invitation; it's the annual orchestra event called the Constellation Ball.

If you attended the Radio Days SSO concert in October you know that big band music, deriving some of its power from massed horns, is an orchestra specialty.

The Constellation Ball features
- drinks alongside Michael Butterman and the musicians, 7 pm
- seated supper, 8 pm
- both live and silent auctions
- Black tie optional
- dancing
Tickets are $150 per (only $100 if you're passing on the drinks)

This ball is one of the orchestra's major events in raising funds.
