30th Anniversary of Viennese Ball
 MAILED:  April 16, 2004

The 30th annual Viennese Ball will take place this weekend in Davies Center at UW-Eau Claire.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 16 and 17. Festivities will continue until 1 a.m. both days.

The largest social event hosted by UW-Eau Claire, the Viennese Ball showcases the University Symphony Orchestra, which performs waltzes and polkas from the Strauss Era, and Jazz Ensemble I, which performs music from America’s Big Band Era.

Student and faculty ensembles and regional musicians also are featured, performing music from many different periods.

Documented as the largest Viennese Ball outside of Vienna, the event provides funds for music scholarships and international study awards, while promoting positive university, community and international relations and an appreciation of the culture, history and music of Vienna, Austria.

Reporters and photographers are welcome to cover the event.
