Join us for supper and an evening of exciting entertainment provided by the Yakima Symphony and the Yakima Valley Museum. 

Now starting our tenth season, each evening is based on a single theme, featuring background historical commentary and showcasing the talents of the best of regional musicians (amplified, so all can hear). The setting is informal, with food and drink available in a comfortable cabaret style under the Neon Garden, in the Bill & Suzanne Doyle Great Hall of the museum. The 2009 season will offer four all-new programs; Dinner with the Reeds, The Civil War: Songs & Readings, The Tenth Anniversary Retrospective, and a special performance to be announced in May that coincides with the Spring opening of the new exhibit, The Human Touch.

Tickets for the entire season, which begins January 15, are available by calling 248-0747.  For more information, visit our website.
