La Jolla Music Society

SummerFest Gala

At The Palais Conrad, Paris 1888

Part of

The Wu Tsai QRT.yrd

As co-chairs of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest Gala, we are delighted to invite you to a truly extraordinary celebration at The Conrad on August 13, 2022. We will be traveling back in time to La Belle Époque at The Palais Conrad, Paris 1888! You will not want to miss this unforgettable evening including a fundraising benefit concert for our education and community engagement programs, featuring our SummerFest Music Director and remarkable pianist Inon Barnatan!

It will be a soirée magnifique, beginning with an elegant French-inspired dinner and specialty handcrafted cocktails. This year’s SummerFest Gala will benefit the La Jolla Music Society education and children’s programming efforts, which means your support will significantly impact a child’s future through critically important music programs. Music affects the intellectual and emotional development of children, particularly children at risk.

Please join us and other like-minded supporters as we continue our mission of leadership and education by becoming a SummerFest Gala Sponsor today! Charitable donors of $5,000 or more are also invited to a fabulous private Sponsor Party at the stunning home of Noni and Drew Senyei in La Jolla on Saturday, September 17, 2022.
