PORTLAND, Maine — The 2011 Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) Designers’ Show House, 149 Western Promenade, will be held in a stunning 1920s stone and slate Tudor. In the spirit of the era, the PSO will host a Great Gatsby Jazz Age Lawn Party as its preview event on Friday, September 9, from 6-8 pm.
Seventeen area designers have been working on the Designers’ Show House for nearly five weeks to completely redesign this historic and architecturally significant Portland-area home. The Gatsby Jazz Age Party is the only opportunity to see the completed house before it opens to the public with tours on September 10.
The evening gala features hors d’oeuvres catered by Aurora Provisions and selected to match the 1920s Gatsby Theme and an open bar provided by National Distributors and Stella Artois. Attendees will also be able to meet the designers who have brought their own color, style and flair to this 1920s Portland landmark. Guests are invited to don costumes of the 1920s.
PSO musician Mark Menduca leads 5 Cylinder Jazz on trombone, providing live music for the evening. Floral arrangements for the event are by Sara Gorstein of S.Scollay Design. The Event Sponsor is Wright-Ryan Construction.
Tickets to attend are $100 per person and are available through the PSO office at 207-773-6128 ext. 311 or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit the PSO Designers’ Show House page. The PSO also offers Patron Tickets for $250, which include the Gala Party and unlimited access to the Show House and all special events.
The Show House is a major fundraiser for the PSO, and funds raised through this event, other Show House events, and tour tickets will allow the PSO to continue extending their impact through live orchestral concerts, collaborative community partnerships, and innovative educational programming.
