The San Luis Obispo Symphony held a Moulin Rouge themed Gala at Embassy Suites in SLO on Saturday, February 11. The event was held to raise funds for the Symphony’s 2023-2024 and the first party of this scale post COVID.
The event ended on a high note when the Symphony was able to obtain two co-sponsors for their entire upcoming season, Peggy Lance Little and Dr. Klaus Gottlieb. Money was also raised for the Symphony’s various educational programs.
The emcee for the evening was Genelle Padilla of KSBY and the sponsors for the evening were KCBX, Bank of the Sierra, and Daou Vineyards. Members of the Youth Symphony, lead by San Luis Obispo Symphony orchestra member Grace Seng and Concertmaster Emily Lanzone, entertained the audience with a beautiful performance. Local band The Tipsy Gypsies also played while guests danced the night away.
