Under the leadership of Gala 2022 Honorary Chairs Drs. Sherry and Ralph Opacic, we invite you to join us as our talented student artists and esteemed alumni present this year’s special anniversary Gala–a magical, musical celebration of OCSA’s journey over the past 35 years! As soon as guests arrive, they will be transported into a dream, complete with ethereal clouds and dazzling student performances. Once the clouds break and the sun sets into darkness, the reception will begin within the grand hallways of the hotel, amidst a sea of illuminating stars. Guests will be invited to bid on one-of-kind items through an enchanting Virtual Auction while enjoying dreamy signature cocktails and scrumptious hors d'oeuvres. The celestial celebration will continue as guests transition into a twinkling ballroom transformed by the rich colors of the midnight sky. In honor of OCSA’s 35th anniversary, our event will pull out all the stops to create an electric production incorporating throwbacks to some of the best Galas of years past. Featuring current students from a variety of conservatories performing alongside prestigious alumni in a mix of rock, classical, jazz, Broadway, contemporary pop, and more, this festive show will tug at your heartstrings one minute and have you dancing out of your seat the next!
