WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS CONCERT

  • The orchestra performs literally surrounding dinner guests so you experience the symphony unlike anywhere else.
  • Superstar violinist Anne Akiko Meyers joins the California Symphony in a program showcasing her star power—her gift to us in return for helping to launch her career over 20 years ago.
  • This is a fundraiser event, but not like any stuffy charity benefit you've ever seen before. We've even eliminated the word "gala" from our vocabulary.

About Anne Akiko Meyers

Since performing with the California Symphony at the age of 23 in 1994 and again in 2007, Anne Akiko Meyers has gone on to become one of the world’s most celebrated violinists. She is a best-selling recording artist who has released 34 albums, and in 2014, was the top-selling traditional classical instrumental soloist on the Billboard charts.

 

About the Venue

Celebrating 30 years is the perfect time to return to a venue that has been a part of many Symphony celebrations over its history. Bring back memories and make some new ones as you enjoy this stunning private auto collection spanning 100 years of automotive design. From a 1906 Cadillac to a 1954 Aston Martin Spider, see rare, vintage cars that are often only one of two or three ever made. Car lovers will think they've died and gone to heaven while even the non-car geeks will love perusing the vintage bling of a bygone era.
