    Seattle University is pleased to announce the entertainment for the 2012 Annual Gala:

    Peter Duchin and His Orchestra!

    A pianist and composer, Peter Duchin has formed one of the most versatile, prestigious and sought-after bands of the modern era.

    Ever since his debut in 1962 at The Maisonette in the St. Regis Hotel in New York City, he and his orchestra have provided the music for many of the nation's most notable public and private events, including numerous Presidential Inaugural Balls (from JFK to Bill Clinton), the openings of museums and arts centers, movie premieres and charity galas, as well as at several Kennedy family weddings and the wedding of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick.

    For the 2012 Seattle University Gala, he and his orchestra of talented musicians will play a variety of popular, high-energy dance songs from the 60’s, 70’s and the 80’s.Peter Duchin
