Sara will be the featured entertainer for the 2016 Symphony Fashion Show, a glamorous evening showcasing the designs of Carolina Herrera and celebrating her 35 years as a fashion icon. Taking place Tuesday, April 26, 2016, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center, the 11th annual event is presented through a partnership among the Nashville Symphony, Carolina Herrera and Gus Mayer of Nashville, with funds going to support the Nashville Symphony’s education and community programs.
Sara will join Herrera and 2016 Symphony Fashion Show Celebrity Chair Lily Aldridge – top international fashion model, Victoria’s Secret Angel and Sport Illustrated Swimsuit issue model – for what promises to be one of the most anticipated events in Nashville this spring. Academy Award-winning actress, film producer, and philanthropist Nicole Kidman is serving as Honorary Chair.
“I’m extremely honored to be part of the 2016 Nashville Symphony Fashion Show,” said Sara. “I have a deep love of fashion, and Carolina Herrera’s designs have always been some of my favorites. I can’t wait to perform and see what everyone’s wearing!”
“With her stunning voice, distinct country-crossover sound and incredible beauty and grace, Sara Evans is the perfect choice for this celebration of Carolina Herrera’s 35 years in fashion,” said Sylvia Bradbury and Suzanne Smothers, 2016 Symphony Fashion Show co-chairs. “We are thrilled to have Sara involved in this amazing night, and we are both looking forward to a memorable and electrifying performance.”
