We are hosting a dinner party on Thursday, May 15. It is a formal dinner for fourteen guests including President Kaler and Mrs. Kaler.
The home is in St. Paul, not far from the University (about 2.5 miles). We have a grand piano that I guarantee will be in excellent playing condition.
We would like some entertainment during the per-dinner "cocktail hour" that would mostly be background entertainment. I would also be interested in having a short performance (1- 2 numbers, depending on length) during the dinner.
I don't have any pre-conceived ideas but it would be nice to have the piano used for at least some the time and, of course, the musical selections should be consistent with what would be enjoyable in the context of an intimate dinner setting.
