About This Show

Symphony Space presents its annual Gala, titled Symphony Space Delivers: A Celebration in Story and Song. Honorary Chairs of the event are actor Alec Baldwin, and Stephen and Evelyn Colbert (both Baldwin and Colbert – host of television’s The Colbert Report — are frequent performers at Symphony Space literary events). Co-chairs are Steven and Evelyn Alden, Saul and Carole Zabar and Stanley and Judith Zabar.

In keeping with its tradition of honoring artists, supporters and longtime friends of Symphony Space, the honorees include documentary filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus (Don’t Look Back, about a Bob Dylan concert tour, and last year’s Elaine Stritch At Liberty), who are both also Co-Chairs of the Symphony Space Film Producers Circle; Peter Schickele (alias PDQ Bach), Broadway star Marian Seldes, who has performed at many Symphony Space literary events; and Barnes & Noble, a funder of Selected Shorts broadcasts on National Public Radio.

The schedule for the evening is as follows:
7 PM, pre-dinner cocktail reception and silent auction
8 PM to 10 PM, dinner with a program of awards, readings, songs and a live auction.
