EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire now is accepting ticket requests by mail for the 26th annual Viennese Ball.
A formal event that recalls the romance and elegance of 19th-century Vienna, the ball will be held Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, from 6:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. in Davies Center.
Mail orders (campus and U.S. mail) will be filled in the order they are received at the University Service Center. Tickets are $30 for the public or $20 for UW System and Chippewa Valley Technical College students. A maximum of six tickets may be requested per order. If ticket requests exceed availability, orders will be returned.
The ticket order form is available in Davies Center; in the Jan. 27 issue of The Spectator, the student-produced campus newspaper; and in a brochure mailed to community members on the Viennese Ball's mailing list. Those not on the mailing list who wish to receive the ticket brochure may call the Activities and Programs Office, (715) 836-4833.
Availability permitting, window and telephone ticket sales will begin Feb. 21.
The Viennese Ball is the largest social event hosted annually by the university and was documented in 1988 as the largest Viennese ball in the world outside of Vienna. The event promotes positive university, community and international relations by expanding an awareness and appreciation of Viennese culture, history and music. Proceeds provide music scholarships and international study awards for deserving UW-Eau Claire students.
The event showcases the faculty and student ensembles of the department of music and theatre arts — notably the University Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble I — and other regional musicians performing music from several different eras. This year's ball features a special appearance by Miss Wisconsin, Mary-Louise Kurey, a UW-Eau Claire graduate and past Viennese Ball scholarship recipient.
The 26th annual Viennese Ball is presented in cooperation with Dayton's Project Imagine, the ball's first showcase partner. Project Imagine is an initiative that highlights Dayton's commitment to arts and culture through grants, sponsorship and volunteerism.
