You will not want to miss this unforgettable evening featuring a Fundraising Benefit Concert for Education by legendary Sérgio Mendes and his five decades of evolution and new collaboration of iconic music.

It will be a Colorful and Festive evening starting with world-class Brazilian inspired cuisine created by Award-Winning Celebrity Chef, Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse and specialty Exotic handcrafted cocktails by Snake Oil Cocktail Co. This will be the Carnival that everyone will be talking about for years to come!

This year’s SummerFest 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 our 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 or attending this extraordinary celebration.

La Jolla Music Society holds two major galas annually. The proceeds from these events help support the five initiatives of our Education & Community Outreach Program and also the artistic programming of major performances such as our Revelle Chamber Music Series, Dance Series, Jazz Series, and SummerFest.
