A party like this has never happened at Dock 5 before. 70+ professional musicians, one of our favorite local DJ’s, and all of you guys converged on Union Market for one night of riot inducing classical music. It was weird as hell to see you all dancing so hard to Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, but it was the kind of weird we like the most.
