Cocktails begin at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m., a performance by the Kent State University Orchestra under the direction of Liza Grossman at 8 p.m. and dancing at 9:30 p.m. As an added treat, Margie Kierstead, highest bidder from last year’s conduct-the-orchestra auction, will serve as guest conductor of the Kent State University Orchestra. To top off the evening, Chas Baker and the Kent State University Jazz Ensemble will play for the guests’ dancing and listening pleasure.
