San Francisco Conservatory of Music Honors Gordon Getty

San Francisco Conservatory of Music honored Gordon Getty at its annual gala on June 23, 2009. The concert and dinner were held at the Conservatory’s brand new home at 50 Oak Street, in San Francisco’s Civic Center. 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. The women in summer gowns added the right shade of glamour to the setting, and the special tent designed for the dinner by Robert Fountain added beautiful shades of blue to the night.
