With a Mardi Gras theme, the gala is a night of New Orleans’ jazz under the direction of Maestro Dirk Meyer, according to a news release from the symphony.

The music of New Orleans’ natives Fats Domino, Mahalia Jackson and Louis Armstrong will fill the Miller Theater with “powerhouse vocalist and trumpeter Byron Stripling and pianist Bobby Floyd leading the parade,” the release continued.

The black tie affair begins at 6:30 p.m. with specialty appetizers and signature libations.
