This wonderful annual event features a fine wine dinner and an auction, and gives us the opportunity to honor generous philanthropists, Gail and Jeffrey Kodosky, and to celebrate the culmination of Jeff’s tenure as Chair of Austin Opera’s Board of Trustees.
This year’s gala, A Celebration of Stars, applauds those that make Austin Opera the very special company it is. Transporting guests to Hollywood, the City of Stars, the celebratory event will feature live jazz music, a gourmet four-course dinner curated by Executive Chef Elmar Prambs, delectable California wines selected by our wine and spirit sponsor Twin Liquors, luxury live and silent auctions, and a performance by a fabulous Austin Opera principal singer.
With your support, we hope to surpass last year’s amazing total of over $250,000, so we’d love to have you with us for this magnificent celebration and hope that you will show your early support by reserving your tickets by December 31, 2021. Sponsors who purchase tickets at the Premier level or higher by December 31 will be recognized on the Serenata invitation.
As well as celebrating honorees Gail and Jeff Kodosky, our Sarah and Ernest Butler Principal Conductor & Artistic Advisor Timothy Myers, our General Director & CEO Annie Burridge, and the incredible artists who grace the stage at the Long Center each season, this event helps raise vital funds for Austin Opera’s thrilling productions, engaging community initiatives, and innovative digital offerings.
