Co-chairs Lynsie Solomon and Scott Johnson welcomed nearly 200 fashionably dressed guests — some wearing fancy masks — to the event in the Petite Ballroom. The attendees enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and delicious Insomnia Cookies during the party. There was also dancing and a deejay. Proceeds from the event benefit the Academy of Music Restoration Fund. The Academy of Music’s 160th Anniversary Ball and Concert will be held on Saturday, January 28th, 2017.
