A luxury annual members-only event for the Palm Beach Symphony, the Season Opening Party at Club Colette sets a precedent for a wonderful year in music for symphony supporters.
PALM BEACH, FL (NOVEMBER 29, 2016) – The Palm Beach Symphony is known for the impeccable quality of their symphonic performances but what most people don’t know is that their members enjoy an equal quality in the private events that surround the concert season.
Palm Beach Symphony’s Season Opening Cocktail Party welcomed over 160 of its members both new and past, board of directors, VIP guests, and at the request of the Board, the Young Friends of the Palm Beach Symphony Committee members. This lavish evening event was held once again in the exclusive Club Colette in Palm Beach. As usual, guests were delighted to greet each other, catch up on their summer activities, and meet our many new members. The event was generously underwritten by The Bristol Palm Beach. On behalf of The Bristol Palm Beach, Mr. Gene Golub, chairman of Golub & Company LLC was presented a unique gift, an original art piece made from recycled musical instruments and parts by artist William Halliday.
Palm Beach Symphony Board of Directors president, Dale McNulty, and Symphony Executive Director, David McClymont, both welcomed guests to the reception. They announced the performance schedule that was masterfully created by Maestro Ramón Tebar and the current enthusiastic response from the community for the upcoming season.
“As you know, ticket sales cover only a portion of the overall expense of operating the orchestra. We are indebted to our sponsors, donors and members for their support for the Symphony. Memberships have flown in by past and new members and we are thrilled to welcome you to the Palm Beach Symphony this season.” – David McClymont, Executive Director
