Members Celebrate the Coming Season at Opening Cocktail Party

 

PALM BEACH, FL (December 5, 2013) – More than one hundred returning members and new friends gathered at Club Colette to kick-off the season and celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Palm Beach Symphony. Steeped in tradition, the Symphony will present five spirited performances at five well known establishments.

Founded in 1974 in recognition of the need for a professional orchestra in Palm Beach, the Symphony performs in a variety of historically important venues on the island of Palm Beach, including Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church, the Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, Mar-a-Lago, and The Society of the Four Arts.

Palm Beach Symphony board president, Dale McNulty, welcomed guests to the reception and introduced new executive director David McClymont before announcing the performance schedule carefully crafted by Maestro Ramón Tebar for the celebratory season.  Conducting all of the anniversary concerts, Tebar, Palm Beach Symphony artistic and music director, is the youngest Spanish conductor to take charge of an American symphony orchestra.

“We are looking forward to a spectacular season with Maestro Tebar,” noted Dale McNulty, president of the Palm Beach Symphony board of directors. “While we celebrate our 40th season with great enthusiasm, the future also excites us as we welcome new members and share captivating and inspirational music that will stir the passion of classical music in us all.”

Guests attending the festive occasion included Sandra and Paul Goldberg, Elaine and James Kay, Doris Hastings, Dorothy Sullivan, Marianne and Ron Davidson, Diana Paxton, Mary Lou Wagner, Chao Li, Arlette Gordon, Jean Dolan, Beverlee and John Raymond, Negar Mohamed, Tova Leidesdorf, Marietta and Dale McNulty, Denise McCann and Leslie Rose and Virginia Longo.

Single tickets are now on sale.  Additionally, memberships are offered at a variety of levels from $1,600-$25,000. Following each performance, Palm Beach Symphony members enjoy an après dinner at venues such as Café Boulud, Phillips Point Club and Mar-a-Lago.  The grand finale of the Palm Beach Symphony’s 40th Anniversary Season will be a Sunday matinee concert in April preceded by a brunch for members and guests in the Cohen Pavilion of the Kravis Center.
