Fox announces Valentine’s Day event, new dates for Glenn Miller Orchestra, #IMomSoHard

Event calendars were completely scrambled last year thanks to the coronavirus, and while the world is not yet back to normal, things are starting to look brighter as performances get rescheduled in Spokane.

First up, the Spokane Symphony will help make Valentine’s Day even sweeter during Valentine’s Day Dinner and Serenade, which features dinner for two and music.

Dinner will be provided by Beacon Hill Catering. The heat-and-serve meal will be available to pick up at the Fox’s Sprague Avenue box office door from 1-4 p.m. Feb. 14. Visit before Feb. 10 at 6 p.m. to order a meal. Patrons also have the option to add a bottle of red or white wine from Barrister Winery to their order.

The dinner includes a 12-minute video performance from symphony concertmaster Mateusz Wolski and pianist Archie Chen. The duo will perform three pieces, Jules Massenet’s “Meditation From Thais,” Vittorio Monti’s “Czardas” and “That’s Amore,” made famous by Dean Martin. The video, which will be emailed at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 14, is the purchaser’s to keep and can be played as many times as they’d like.

The dinner for two and serenade is $60, plus the cost of wine ($21-$23). The serenade without a meal is $10.

For a chance to attend the serenade filming Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Fox with your valentine, go to the Spokane Symphony’s Facebook page and like the post about this contest. Then leave a comment sharing “the most endearing thing about your sweetheart.”

On Sept. 16, comediennes and mothers Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley will bring #IMOMSOHARD to the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. This event was originally scheduled for March 25. During the show, the duo will share the good, bad and funny about motherhood, their friendship and more.
