3:30pm Cocktail Reception, University Club
5:30pm Performance
7:00pm Dinner with the Artists, Backstage at the Greek

Built around these remarkable musicians performing Duke Ellington classics at the historic Greek Theater, the Gala at the Greek raises vital funds in support of Cal Performances' Education and Community Programs which build future audiences for the arts. The cocktail reception returns to the glorious University Club with panoramic views, and dinner will be backstage with the artists under the twinkly lights of the iconic lanterns.

Event proceeds directly benefit Cal Performances' Education and Community Programs
