Join us on Friday, March 10, 2017 for Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s annual Winter Gala. This year’s gala will showcase “New Music for Old Instruments” and will feature the world premiere of a newly commissioned piece by Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Caroline Shaw performed by a very special guest artist. PBO Music Director Nicholas McGegan will also speak to the importance of contemporary commissions for period instrument ensembles.
The evening also includes:
- Silent auction showcasing one-of-a-kind items and cocktail reception
- An exquisite three-course dinner and student musician performance
- Festive Afterparty featuring a premium Scotch tasting and delectable dessert reception
This year’s event will be held in downtown San Francisco at the St. Regis Hotel and will support the Orchestra’s continued artistic and educational endeavors.
