On Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018 hundreds of music-loving philanthropists enjoyed the annual Boston Symphony Orchestra Gala at the always elegant Symphony Hall, made even lovelier by lighting by High Output and rentals and floral arrangements by Be Our Guest and Winston Flowers.
Guests enjoyed a decadent raw bar provided by Island Creek Oysters, canapes, and free-flowing open bar along with a sumptuous three-course meal designed by James Beard Award winner and chef/owner of Craigie on Main and Kirkland Tap and Trotter, Tony Maws.
As expected, the evening’s entertainment was superb, starting with soprano Erica Petrocelli and pianist Damian Francoeur-Kryzek, followed by BSO principal cellist Blaise Dejardin and pianist Michael Brown. The Boston Symphony Children’s Choir as conducted by Tanglewood and the BSO Choral Director James Burton, along with pianists Julia Scott Carey and Nathan Salazar stole the show, and helped encouraged even further generosity for a number of luxury auction packages.
With the wine free flowing and well-heeled guests dressed to the nines, enjoying the lovely ambience and entertainment is sure to please even those with the most discerning taste. This is definitely one event not to be missed for those who love to support the arts!
