The most talked about and exciting black-tie gala in our region is about to stage a return!
PIFA 2016 Gala is Chaired by
Alfred P. West, Founder, Chairman and CEO of SEI
Jami Wintz McKeon, Chair of Morgan Lewis and Bockius
Don’t miss this unforgettable evening featuring Grammy Award-winning singer Rhiannon Giddens live in Verizon Hall! For her final number, Giddens will be joined by French performance troupe Compagnie des Quidams, who will perform their unique show FierS à Cheval, or “Proud Horse” – an interactive show with a fantastical group of inflatable horse puppets! After the performance, enjoy dessert and dancing in the Plaza with Antibalas, the 12-piece ensemble credited with introducing Afrobeat to a wider global audience, influencing countless musicians and developing a live show that is the stuff of legend.
