Palm Beach Symphony is thrilled to celebrate a wonderful four-year partnership with Findlay Galleries, America’s second oldest art gallery. This remarkable art organization has generously supported the Symphony in many ways: by hosting two consecutive gala kick-off parties and a Young Friends of the Palm Beach Symphony end-of-season event, by sponsoring the 14th and 15th Annual Symphony Gala, and by consistently supporting and advocating for our music education programs. The Symphony’s tremendous growth in recent years is due in no small part to the investments of Findlay Galleries.
Our partnership began to flourish when James R. Borynack, Chairman and CEO of Findlay Galleries, graciously hosted the Young Friends of the Palm Beach Symphony’s season finale event, a cocktail reception and salon performance for the newest collection of music and culture enthusiast. Findlay Galleries was an ideal venue for this event, which highlighted the Symphony’s music education program and featured student musician presentations, including the inspiring side-by-side performance of a young protégé playing next to Palm Beach Symphony’s principal cellist and student mentor, Claudio Jaffé.
Since that time, we’ve been fortunate to have the continued support of James R. Borynack and Findlay Galleries. From Symphony events hosted at their visually stunning venue to expanded Symphony programming made possible through their generous corporate sponsorship, our members, supporters, and the community at large have benefited greatly from our partnership with Findlay Galleries.
Symphony members tell us the experience of enjoying world-class music surrounded by the beautiful artwork displayed at Findlay Galleries is unparalleled. We are thrilled to be returning to Findlay Galleries again in January 2018 for our 16th Annual Gala Kick-Off.
Children who would not otherwise be able to attend a live classical music performance enjoy the experience of a lifetime – a live orchestral performance of Prokofiev’s Peter & the Wolf paired with ballet choreography and live narration – thanks to the generous sponsorship of James Borynack and Adolfo Zaralegui of Findlay Galleries. This season, their sponsorship has made it possible for us to bring this spectacular production to the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center and invite the students and families of New Hope Charities to attend free of charge. This will be the first time that Palm Beach Symphony has performed a free-for-children concert in Belle Glade, and we thank Mr. Borynack, Mr. Zaralegui, and Findlay Galleries for this incredible opportunity.
The staff, board of directors, and volunteers of Palm Beach Symphony deeply appreciate our wonderful partnership with Findlay Galleries.
