The Grand Ballroom will feature ballroom and swing style music and the vocal and musical talents of Live Oak Theatre and Conservatory faculty and students. Members of the Live Oak Conservatory will provide tributes to such artists as Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, and Harry Connick, Jr. Hernando County’s own Stephanie Barnett Sagar and Randi Olsen will perform a wide range of classical and Broadway ballroom tunes.
Cake decoration contest
The Viennese ball will also feature a Viennese cake decoration contest. Members of the community are invited to enter the cake contest and provide samples for an audience choice award. A prize will be offered for the cake chosen by the audience as the best of the evening. Cakes will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
The fundraiser is designed to equip conservatory students with the tools they need for success. The Live Oak Conservatory offers 25 different programs in the performing arts and the scholarship fundraiser will be used to purchase equipment and to subsidize tuition for those students who require assistance to attend the conservatory.
The cost for the ball is $75 per couple or $40 per ticket, which will include all the European refreshments, coffee and tea.
