Rotterdam, March 19, 2011 Rotterdam Philharmonisch Gala en Orkest
The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra's yearly gala was held in 'De Doelen' tonight, Rotterdam's main concert hall. Over 1000 guests were present for a concert and a dinner. The theme of this year was "Romeo and Juliet".
Guests were welcomed by one of the hosts and ushers of the Protocolbureau, who were also in charge of the seating arrangement and assisted in welcoming the many dignitaries.
The evening started with the reception at 5 pm, followed by the concert at 7 pm and the dinner at 8. The dress code for this evening was, as always, black tie.
