MARTIN WOLDSON THEATER AT THE FOX

Sponsored by Frank Knott and the Estate of Sherry Martin Knott

Bill Simer and ReneÄ— Rolando, Fox 10th Anniversary Honorary Chairs
Dr. Francisco & Mary Velázquez, Fox 10th Anniversary Gala Chair

You are invited to join us as we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the restoration of Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox. Originally a movie theater, it opened in 1931. The theater was the largest and most modern in Spokane, but with the rise of suburban cinemas in the 1970s, it witnessed a gradual decline. Unwilling to see such a historical treasure demolished, a city-wide effort was led by the Spokane Symphony to lovingly restore The Fox to its former Art Deco splendor in 2007. 

Thomas Hampson

Thomas Hampson performed at the grand reopening of The Fox in 2007, and the world-renowned, Grammy Award-winning baritone is coming back to the theater to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its restoration at the gala. Born in Spokane and an alum of EWU, Hampson is hailed as “America’s Leading Baritone” and the “Ambassador of American Song.”

The gala will include a delicious catered meal, drinks, a video presentation on The Fox restoration, and entertainment. Funds raised at the event will support the Spokane Symphony and Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox.
