SummerFest 2015 Gala: Echoes Across A Continent

La Jolla Music Society presented “SummerFest 2015 Gala: Echoes Across A Continent” on Aug. 15 at the home of Joan and Irwin Jacobs.

This year’s gala celebrated music and culinary delights from France and Russia. Guests enjoyed a chamber music concert featuring SummerFest artists, performing works by Tchaikovsky, Glière, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich and others. The collaboration between event designer Janice Dodge and Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille added to the success of the event.

Gala proceeds benefit La Jolla Music Society’s education, outreach and artistic programs. SummerFest 2015 – led by Music Director Cho-Liang Lin, La Jolla Music Society’s President & Artistic Director Christopher Beach, and SummerFest Chair Peggy Preuss – features over 80 world-class artists and ensembles performing 15 concerts between Aug. 5 and Aug. 28.
