 A gala commemorating the music and dance of the WW1 period.  Imagine yourself at the nightclub “Castles By The Sea” on the Long Beach Boardwalk and watch the Fred Astaire Dancers recreate some of the dances Vernon and Irene Castle made famous.   The evening includes live music, professional ballroom dancing, luscious dinner, silent auction with unique and classy items, and a chance to dance the evening away, all while supporting Musicians of Ma’alwyck.   Our gala is a very special night, come see why the Times Union called our 2015 gala one of the best events of the year.

The professional show includes music of Irving Berlin from his delightful 1917 musical Watch Your Step, as well as music of Jerome Kern, Victor Herbert and Art Hickman and others. A special WW1 cocktail will be offered: French 75. WW1 ladies’ hats replicas created by Julie Potter (six time winner of the annual Saratoga Racetrack Hat contest) will be modeled and available for purchase. The general dancing will feature the wonderful dance music of DJ Peter Collins, who is renowned for his expertise in musical selections. He will be playing music drawn from the wonderful repertory of the 1910s. There will be many fun historic touches throughout the evening.
