PALM BEACH, FL (January 3, 2014) – After a well-received start to the Palm Beach Symphony’s 40th Anniversary Season at Society of the Four Arts, Symphony members toasted at tables alongside the Maestro himself and principal players of the night’s concert when the energy of the evening’s performance continued to Café Boulud for the member’s only après dinner.

Palm Beach Symphony Music and Artistic Director, Ramon Tebar, joined at the dinner by his parents visiting from their homeland of Spain, conducted the Symphony’s 40th Season opener. Members personally congratulated Tebar at the after-party on the celebratory season’s first of five concerts. The performance, titled “Four Decades, Forty Years, Four Arts,” featured Mozart’s 40th Symphony and Beethoven’s 4th Symphony, aligning as many fours as the Maestro could put together.

“We enthusiastically anticipate each of the inspiring concerts that Maestro Tebar will bring to us for our 40th Anniversary Season and look forward to celebrating each at the social gatherings that follow them,” noted Palm Beach Symphony President of the Board, Dale McNulty, as he welcomed members to the up-scale Palm Beach restaurant. “The camaraderie enjoyed at each of the après dinners, along with the opportunity to dine beside the very talented members and special guests of our orchestra, is very special for any admirer of the finest music and the finest food. We are most grateful to our evening’s sponsor, board member and Chairman, Leslie Rose, for hosting us in this elegant setting.”

Members attending the affair included Christine and Garo Artinian, Dorian Baldwin, Hans and Sigrid Baumann, Helen Bernstein, Harry and Marie Bissell, Leslie Blum, Thomas Boland, Elizabeth Bowden, Trudy Brekus, Lurana Campanro and Dr. Jose Figuero, Mercedes Cassidy, Dr. Ava Coleman, Natasha Consigli, Shirley Cowen, Danielle Davidson, Jean Dolan, Margaret Donnelley, Renate Franco, Paul and Sandra Goldner, Doris Hastings, Andy and Carol Hays, Moneca Kaufmann, Gabriel Magdnaz, Jackie and Link Klein, Jeannine Merrin, Nick and Bernadene Mileti, Carol Sandberg, Dorothy Sullivan, Don and Mary Thompson, plus many others who had enjoyed the concert.

Kicking off the New Year, the second concert includes Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and Piazolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires featuring violinist Itamar Zorman who is sure to join members at the après dinner directly after the performance. The venue for this other exercise in fours will be the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum on January 9, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. with the supper to be held in the famous home’s West Room.
