In Town and Country for SF Symphony Soirees

San Francisco Symphony held two summer soirees, one in town and one in the country, to thank its top donors for the Opening Night Gala on September 3, 2014.  In town, supporters Sloan and Roger Barnett hosted a cocktail reception at their San Francisco home, and in the country Lisa and Doug Goldman gathered donors and friends at their Atherton residence.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) as music director. The season opening gala performance will feature Bonnie Raitt and Yuja Wang, along with MTT and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. The annual Opening Night Gala is San Francisco Symphony’s most significant fundraiser for its music education programs.

San Francisco Symphony Opening Night Gala Chair, 2014, is Lisa Goldman. Paula Blank and Rebecca Saroyan Robbins will co-chair the Symphony Supper, Libby Leffler will perform double duty as co-chair, with Blake Pearson, for the Symphonix Dinner Party and chair for the Afterparty.
