You are invited to partake in a Musical Cocktail Party with such guests as George Gershwin, Frederik Chopin, the fiery Cuban Ernesto Lecuona, American adventurer Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Johann Strauss ,the “Waltz King”, amongst others. In the course of the evening, you will meet these fascinating people , all of whom have something to say, and do so, through music. Meanwhile your irreverent host, raconteur Evans Haile will spin stories and observations that will have you laughing at how the more things change, the more they remain the same.

Evans Haile was a featured soloist during the Ocala Symphony’s 2023 Finale Concert “Pop Music Americas.”

This is an evening of glittering piano virtuosity, romance, connections, great music, stories and laughter around the piano.

Guests will be seated at tables of 4 or 6 – so bring a group of friends or meet someone new! If you plan to sit with another party please email so we can best accommodate you and your guests.
