Legacy of Sound

| December 16, 2014 | Parties

A silver anniversary and many more musical years to come were feted at Pacific Symphony’s season opener, which netted more than $150,000. The guest of honor? Maestro Carl St.Clair, who joined 300 fans to celebrate his 25 years with the orchestra. The bash commenced with a poolside party at the Westin. Next, aficionados dined on a sumptuous meal and snapped their fingers to West Side Story songs in the Terrace Pavilion. But the grand finale came in the concert hall, when violinist Joshua Bell performed Alexander Glazunov’s Violin Concerto, and St.Clair led the West Coast premiere of Christopher Rouse’s Supplica. An instant classic. –Photos by Nick Koon
