Hollywood Bowl tickets still available

August 6, 2007

Tickets are still available for a great night at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles with Drake alumni and friends on Sunday, Sept. 16. First enjoy a pre-concert picnic starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Camrose Picnic Area (area 15), and then enjoy musical magic under the stars in one of the world's largest natural amphitheaters.

The 7:30 p.m. concert will feature the 14-member band Pink Martini, recreating the legendary L.A. nightclub Cocoanut Grove, where Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and others wowed audiences. Fireworks will fill the sky after the concert.

Bring your own picnic and a dessert -- or shaker of martinis -- to share with other Drake alumni and friends.

Concert tickets are $40 per person. If you already have concert tickets, please join the group for the picnic.

The Hollywood Bowl is located at 2301 N. Highland Ave., just off the Hollywood Freeway. Information about the concert, maps, and other aspects of the Bowl is available on the Bowl's Web site. Information on the Bowl's shuttle to and from various areas -- its "park and ride" option -- is also available on the site.

To order tickets, please contact Barb Dietrich Boose, director of alumni and parent programs, at 515-271-3077 or barbara.boose@drake.edu. Tickets will be mailed. Local Hollywood Bowl event organizers are Laurie Woken Manny, BN'82; Brian Harms, AS'89; Sean Gannon, AS'91; and Jeff Pielet, JO'76.
