Washington Performing Arts Annual Gala

Together in Art and Community

Washington Performing Arts’s 2024 Annual Gala and Auction, Together in Art and Community, amplifies the power of the arts, honors the friends and partnerships we treasure, and celebrates a milestone anniversary of our Children of the Gospel Choir.

Join us in Celebration!

Collaboration and partnership have long been superpower of Washington Performing Arts, and you will see shimmering examples of this at our Gala celebration.

Join us on Friday, March 15 at the newly renovated National Museum of Women in the Arts to enjoy an electrifying evening of performances, cocktails, delicious cuisine, dancing, auctions, and special recognition while supporting the performances, arts education programs, and outreach initiatives that connect our community.

Help us honor treasured longtime friends Héctor J. Torres and Jay Haddock Ortiz, celebrate our impactful programs, and commemorate a milestone anniversary of our Children of the Gospel Choir. Secure your sponsorship or tickets today!

All proceeds raised at the Annual Gala and Auction will support Washington Performing Arts’s arts education initiatives for young people, adults, and families including programs in partnership with D.C. Public Schools, such as the Embassy Adoption Program, and our Men, Women, and Children of the Gospel Choirs.
