Supplemental Professional Events

During the festival party (May 26, 2016, beginning at 7:00 pm), previews of the upcoming schedule of programming will be presented. Chat with the participating artists and directors of the performance venues over a glass of sparkling wine and a bite to eat and celebrate and dance together afterward.
