Singing Praise for the Pacific Symphony

Enthusiasm spilled over for classical music and the start of Pacific Symphony’s 33rd season as more than 260 guests gathered for the opening night dinner and concert Thursday, Sept. 22. Violin virtuoso Sarah Chang performed Mendelssohn’s violin concerto.


The event netted approximately $200,000 for the Symphony’s artistic and educational programs and was co-chaired by Ruth Ann and John Evans. It began with a cocktail reception, followed by an elaborate dinner, concert, intermission reception and post-concert party.
