A Grand Night for a Gala
The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College had a lot to celebrate the evening of May 5— its 40th Anniversary, as well as the premiere of a new work by Jessica Lang Dance set to the music of Tony Bennett. It also turned out to be the night that Seth Soloway was officially named director of the Center.
Guests had a chance to pose for a photo on the red carpet before heading in for an enchanted evening, which included raising a glass to longtime patrons and artists.
Here’s to the next 40 years of great performances.
