A GRAND LOVE STORY
Heather and Ben Peterek
Ben proposed to me at the top of the beautiful floral entrance stairs of The Grand 1894 Opera House in 2006 before a Tony Bennett concert. It doesn’t get much more memorable than that for me! As a huge Tony Bennett fan, I had already been anticipating the concert for months, but then to be completely surprised by this proposal which I’d also been (wishfully) anticipating was beyond magical. The Grand has always been one of our favorite Galveston landmarks, but now we have added joy every time we walk through its doors knowing this historic theatre is a place where our lives were changed forever. This April we’ll celebrate 12 years of marriage – I’m thinking a date night at The Grand would be the perfect anniversary gift!!

Pink Martini’s cheeky name is no accident. It speaks to the fizzy spirit and breezy sophistication that this 11-member orchestra, decked out in natty suits and colorful dresses, brings to its music-making. Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire in over 25 languages on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout the world. Mixing original songs and classic hits, the popular ensemble revels in a hybrid, throwback style that mixes pop, jazz, classical and world music.

This Tony Award®-winning Best Musical is lovingly ripped off from the film classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail, with a book by Eric Idle and music and lyrics by the Grammy Award winning team of Mr. Idle and John Du Prez. Spamalot is the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table as they seek the Holy Grail. Flying cows, killer rabbits, taunting Frenchmen, and show-stopping musical numbers are just a few of the reasons audiences worldwide are raving about Spamalot.
