Spring Gala

Our Spring Gala is a showcase of all the performing arts classes that are offered through the Wirth Center. The two-hour concert is a bonanza of all disciplines of music and dance, featuring 150+ performers from our school and attended by over 600 audience members! Large dance numbers, monster piano duets featuring a dozen players at a time, ensembles of violins, guitars, and more are performed to professional lighting and sound mixing at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. It is an exciting concert featuring all the music and dance that happens at the Wirth Center, and we are so happy that each of you are a part of it.  What a way to welcome the spring season!

Spring Gala 2017 is on May 6th, at 6:30 pm at Sauk Rapids-Rice High School. The theme is CARNIVAL, so be prepared for all the fun of a fair, the pomp of a parade, and the silliness of a circus!

Don’t Forget to get your Tickets!- We will have assigned seating this year, so please buy your tickets early! The tickets are available to purchase in the office or at the concert the day of the gala (if any tickets remain). Tickets are $10 when purchased in advance or $15 the day of the concert. Any children performing in the event do not need a ticket. Children 4 and under are also free if sharing a seat with a parent.



DVD’s are made of the Spring Gala and will be available to order at upcoming rehearsals. They are professionally made by Tell-A-Vision and are shipped directly to your home once completed. This is an excellent way to share your child’s musical milestone with distant family members and also remember and relive the experience in your home! The cost is $30.
