New Year’s Swingin’ Eve – a grand finale to 2011

Give 2011 a grand finale with music and a festive feast at New Year’s Swingin’ Eve, Saturday, December 31 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Whaling Museum. Join members of the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra as they fill the museum’s halls with music for everyone. Americana recording artists, McCarthy & Legge, will also perform.

Dance to a swinging jazz quartet, listen to a classical trio, enjoy some rock ‘n roll – or do all three.

Russell Morin Fine Catering will provide an array of petit open-face sandwiches, hors d’oeuvres, seasonal pasta, and sweet pastries – served with freshly brewed Colombian coffee, decaf, gourmet teas and a cash bar.

Tickets: $50 per person (children: $15, under 18 years), includes entertainment, food, and kids activities. Call Alison Smart: (508) 997-0046 ext. 115.

At 8:30 p.m., view the city’s fireworks display from inside the Museum’s newly restored Bourne Building. The evening includes a silent auction of wonderful gifts and keepsakes.

Proceeds of New Year’s Swingin’ Eve will support the education programs of the orchestra and the museum.
