The tent is up!

The tent people arrived at 1 a.m. this morning and worked all night to get the tent set up on Gibbs Street. It's the largest frame tent in the area, and extends from just outside the Eastman Theatre entrance all the way down to Java's! Volunteers are already at the Theatre putting up decorations and then will start on the tent - setting up all the tables and chairs, decorative streetlights, and 40 trees.

The Red Carpet Spectacular gets underway at 5:30 pm with a special culinary event by Wegmans, and then Jeff Tyzik, RPO musicians, and other dignitaries will walk the red carpet at 7:00 pm. Stop by with your camera to get pictures of our local celebrities, just like Hollywood's glamorous Academy Awards!

After the concert tonight and tomorrow night, the tent will be the site of the Stars and Streetlights Soiree, where concert attendees can enjoy dessert, cash bar, and live jazz. Come party with the RPO for Jeff's 15th! For more information, click here.
