On May 16, local socialites and philanthropists joined the San Francisco League of the San Francisco Symphony for An Evening of Musical Adventures. The intimate evening was filled with food, friendship and music. Showcasing their talents were the musicians from the San Francisco Symphony’s highly acclaimed Adventures in Music (AIM) program, providing music ensembles from the classical, Latin and jazz worlds.
The spectacular event featured a welcoming cocktail reception in the interior garden of the famed Airbnb lobby. Festive cocktails were followed by a seated multicourse dinner featuring performances by AIM ensembles: Omar Ledezma Jr. & Pedro Rosales, Latin percussionists; Swing Stories, jazz quartet; and Four Score Strings, string ensemble. Following dinner, guests boogied to the electro swing dance sounds of DJ Vochegroovsky.
“This extraordinary evening celebrates the Adventures in Music program, one of San Francisco Symphony’s many music education programs,” says event chair Roberta Economidis. “This program brings music to over 25,000 Bay Area children each year.”
The event committee included chair Roberta Economidis, Gia Colosi, Pamela Rummage Culp, Mary Hagan, Anette Harris, Jacque Hawk, Maggie Hazelrig, Anne Herrera, Sallie Huntting, Kathryn and Damian Inglin, Jacqueline Jacoby, Judy Jorgensen, Kathleen Kelley, Christopher Hojin Lee, Sam Leftwich, Maria Hermanussen Marcus, Elaine Mellis, Laura Miller and Matt Herold, Manjula Jeyapalan Noone, Judith Schulman and Sharon Seto.
