]Enjoy cocktail hour, silent and live auctions, a gourmet dinner and live music and dancing at the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra’s annual Symphony Ball. This year ASO honors long-time supporter Arthur Edwards, who passed away last May, with the theme Bow Tie Under the Big Top. Edward’s fashion trademark was a bowtie, so wear your favorite bow tie to the Ball. “I can’t wait to see a room full of bow ties,” says son Jib Edwards. “Dad would have loved that.” The Ball benefits ASO’s artistic and educational programs. Tickets go on sale January 3. The Ball is March 23, 6:30pm at Loews Annapolis Hotel. $225; rsvp: 410-269-1132: www.annapolissymphony.org.
