UW-Eau Claire’s Viennese Ball is a formal event recalling the romance and elegance of 19th-century Vienna, Austria. The 39th annual ball, held April 12 and 13, was the first to be held in the new W.R. Davies Student Center.
Modeled on the historic New Year’s Eve Kaiser Ball, the event transforms all three levels of Davies Center. Guests waltz in the grand ballroom, swing dance to big band standards, polka in the informal festival hall, sing along in the two-level piano bar and hear showcase performances on the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano. The event also is a much-anticipated fundraiser for music, service and international study scholarships for UW-Eau Claire students.
