The East Metro Symphony Orchestra (EMSO) is pleased to present Mardi Gras!, the fourth annual EMSO pops cabaret concert and fundraiser. This year’s event will celebrate the musical theme of Mardi Gras and Carnival from around the world. The orchestra will be performing a wide variety of works showcasing wildly-celebratory music from countries that celebrate their own special versions of Carnival -- from standard classical music to tangos and other lighter fare. Members of the orchestra will perform in a variety of smaller ensembles including a Dixieland band and a Zydeco band to bring a true New Orleans musical experience to the event, and a sing-along of show tunes and other popular music will be included. Drinks and a dessert buffet by award-winning Lake Elmo Inn will highlight the event. A broad selection of items, donated by EMSO members and local businesses, will be up for auction throughout the evening. Proceeds from this event will benefit the orchestra’s artistic and community outreach endeavors. Doors and bidding open at 6:30 p.m. The musical performance starts at 7:30 p.m.
