As a highlight of its 10th Anniversary season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County has planned a spectacular evening to celebrate its first magical decade and pay tribute to its name benefactor, Adrienne Arsht. Set for Thursday, April 21, 2016, the Adrienne Arsht Center’s 10th Anniversary Season Gala will include a star-studded performance, beginning at 7:30 p.m., highlighting many genres at once – dance, pop, gospel, classical, jazz and more.

The evening will also include an array of opportunities for Gala sponsors to celebrate the occasion with fellow supporters, community leaders and philanthropists.

The suggested event attire is “black tie.”
