We bring you a snippet of entertainment from the Valentine’s Day Masquerade Ball at the Center for the Arts on Saturday, including the Centennial Swing (the jazz half of the Globe-Miami Centennial Band) as well as the performance of Paul Machula’s “Ready to be Elevated.” Held on Arizona Statehood Day, the ball was meant to be both a celebratory fundraiser for the center as well as a dedication of the center’s new elevator. Although the state elevator inspector wasn’t able to schedule the final inspection and release for the elevator in time, the evening was a hit nonetheless.
