ANZACC Midwest presents the

2018 Down Under Soirée

LondonHouse Chicago | Curio Collection by Hilton
85 East Wacker Drive, 3rd Floor, Chicago, IL, 60601
Saturday, January 27, 2018, 7:00pm – 12:00am


ANZACC Midwest is delighted to invite members and friends to the 2018 Down Under Soirée – celebrating Australia Day and Waitangi Day – at LondonHouse Chicago | Curio Collection by Hilton on Saturday, January 27, 2018 from 7:00pm to midnight.


The evening will begin with a cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner and live performance by our special guests, New Zealand’s Marla Kavanaugh & America’s Beloved Tenor, Daniel Rodriguez. It will also include the Australia-US Midwest Awards for Outstanding Achievement, a raffle draw benefiting Heartland Alliance, business networking, a themed photo booth, DJ, and dancing, of course.


After a chance meeting at the offices of EMI/Capitol Records in New York City in 2002, New Zealand’s Marla Kavanaugh and America’s Beloved Tenor, Daniel Rodriguez, were sent by the record company to tour Australasia as a duo, in support of Daniel’s second studio album and they’ve been touring ever since.

 

Marla Kavanaugh is an award-winning Musical Theater and Opera singer. Born in Dunedin, New Zealand, a move to the USA in the 1990s enabled her to grow her career in ways that she had only dreamed of. She has performed as a leading lady with orchestra in Japan and all over the USA. Her album, Songbirds, with twin sister Marissa, is available worldwide and she is a guest on four of Daniel’s albums.

 

Daniel Rodriguez is best known as “the singing policeman.” He was already singing at major events in New York and Washington when the horrific events of 9/11 transpired. A tap on the shoulder to sing at Prayer for America in the days following the tragedy thrust him into national and international view. Daniel caught the eye of legendary tenor, Placido Domingo, and studied with him soon after, as well as the attention of New York recording executives. To date, Daniel has released seven studio albums.

The Venue: LondonHouse Chicago | Curio Collection by Hilton

In the summer of 2013, visionary Chicago based developer Oxford Capital Group, LLC acquired the historic building and began a comprehensive redevelopment.  The transformation of this architecturally stunning property created a 452 room high-design, luxury lifestyle hotel called LondonHouse.  LondonHouse Chicago synchronizes the classical architecture of 360 North Michigan Avenue with a modernist 22 story all glass tower addition forming a one-of-a-kind destination in Chicago.  At LondonHouse Chicago, It Starts Here.
 

Location: LondonHouse Chicago | Curio Collection by Hilton

At the corner of North Michigan Avenue and Wacker Drive, LondonHouse sits as one of the "Big Four" skyscrapers surrounding the Michigan Avenue bridge.  To the north is the Chicago River and Magnificent Mile.  To the east is the lakefront.  To the south and west are the Chicago Loop and nearby Millennium Park, Art Institute, Merchandise Mart and the restaurants of West Randolph Street.  When you start here, at the center of it all, you’ll find everything the city has to offer is just a short walk, bike, train or cab ride away.
