Ring in the New Year with Johnny KnorrWritten by Kristen Criswell | | email@example.com
The 25th Annual Big Band New Year’s Eve Party with The Johnny Knorr Orchestra will take place in the Stranahan Theater Great Hall on Dec. 31.
“Those in attendance can enjoy hors d’oeurves, Champagne and dance throughout the night to big band music,” said Jerry Knorr, musical director of the orchestra and Johnny’s son.
The orchestra has continued to ring in the new year the past 25 years because of public demand, Knorr said.
The evening runs from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. and features music from The Johnny Knorr Orchestra and vocalist Gay Hobbs. There will be a champagne toast to the new year and a buffet breakfast from chef Robert Rosencrantz after midnight. Hats and noisemakers will be provided as part of the admission price. A cash bar and free parking is also available.
Tickets cost $45 a person in advance and $50 at the door. Reservations are available for tables of eight. Tickets can be purchased at johnnyknorr.com or by calling (419) 697-7612. Knorr said the evening could feature a few surprise guests, but plans are still in the works.
