ThirdCoast Digest’s official debutante ball was a blast and a total success! Held in the Hilton’s posh Art Deco Crystal Ballroom, our fundraiser to support the United Performing Arts featured live entertainment from some of the city’s finest performing and visual arts groups, not to mention some dynamite emcee action from Tom Strini (who looks especially dapper in a suit) and our vivacious co-publisher Jon Anne Willow. We couldn’t be happier with the turnout, and we hope you all had a great time. We know we did!

A big thanks to all of our amazing guests : Frank Almond, Dan Dance, Milwaukee Public Theatre, Danceworks, the Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra, the Florentine Opera Company, Next Act Theater, Wild Space Dance,  Skylight Opera Theater and the UWM Peck School of the Arts. Not to mention our sponsors and supporters: We Energies, Milwaukee Downtown, Marcus Hotels, Zizzo Advertising and Public Relations and Marcus Promotions. We couldn’t have done it without you!

For all of our friends who missed the party, check out this lovely photo gallery from TCD’s Photo Editor Brian Jacobson. We’ll see you next year!

    Just wanted to clarify that the handsome kora player you have marked as “artfeverkothi” is NOT from Ko-Thi, he appeared courtesy of Milwaukee Public Theatre. His name is Oumar Sagna from Senegal. FYI Thanks!

    Thank you, Carolyn, for the clarification. Mr. Sagna moved on right after I took that picture, and I didn’t get to ask him who he was with and I presumed wrong. I’ve edited the rollover information for the shot.
