San Francisco Conservatory of Music Honors Gordon Getty

San Francisco Conservatory of Music honored Gordon Getty at its annual gala in its brand new building on June 23, 2009. The Conservatory’s new home is at 50 Oak Street, in San Francisco’s Civic Center neighborhood. For the celebratory evening, Frederica von Stade and Jan Buckley collaborated on a musical program with tributes to Getty from Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Jake Heggie, Robin Sutherland, Marnie Breckenridge, Lisa Delan and Emil Miland.

Women dressed in summer gowns added the right shade of glamour to the setting, and the elaborate tent designed for the dinner by Robert Fountain added beautiful shades of blue to the night.
