Fifth Annual Valentine's Gala a Record Success

(February 18, 2014) - On Friday, February 14 at Germantown Performing Arts Center, 450 guests enjoyed a rare Valentine's treat with Tennessee Shakespeare Company.

Broadway's longest-running Phantom of the Opera, Howard McGillin, accompanied by pianist Joe Thalken, left the audience on its feet several times -- particularly when he followed his hour-long performance with a mesmerizing encore of "The Music of the Night," from Phantom.

Afterwards, Howard and Joe graciously shared dessert, photos, and autographs with TSC's Platinum and Gold sponsors of the event, which set a fundraising record for TSC's innovative Education Programs through tickets, sponsorships, and exclusive auctions.

Howard's performance followed a sumptuous dinner that sat guests throughout the theatre, surrounded by TSC's famous open bars.

Save the Date for next year's Valentine's Gala: February 14, 2015!
