SummerFest Gala 2010 An evening of Music!!

(followed by The Buzz!!)



It was a perfect evening August 13th, 2010 as guests in cocktail attire gathered for La Jolla Music Society's Summerfest Gala at the Scripps Seaside Forum.

The evening started with cocktails, and continued with a wonderful concert. Cho-Liang Lin on violin and Christopher O'Riley performed Brahms' Scherzo in C Minor. John Barry was the was the next choice with his Somewhere in Time performed by Chee-Yun on violin and Christopher O'Riley on piano. There were many more selections including 'salon music' performed by Paul Neubauer on viola, Chee-Yun on violin, Eric Han on cello and Julie Coucheron on piano. Perfectly young and talented Zu Jian Shang on erhu and Xiao Nan Xu on accordion played an amazing trio of songs from Dinicu's Romanian Spring Dance, Piazzollla's Oblivion, to a Traditional Chinese entree, The Horse Race. The finale was Chopin's Introduction and Polonaise Brilliante for Cello and Piano performed by Carter Brey on cello and Christopher O'Riley on piano...... Brilliante indeed!

The evening continued with a seaside dinner by Jeffrey Strauss of Pamplemousse Grille and dancing to popular DJ tunes.

Among the summer elegant crowd were Gala Chair Barbara Enberg in a pretty Nicole Miller gown, Valerie and Harry Cooper (Valerie wore a lacy dress by Oscar de la Renta), La Jolla Music Society President and Artistic Director Christopher Beach, SummerFest Music Director Cho-Liang Lin, SummerFest Chair Eleanor Ellsworth, and SummerFest Vice-Chair Dolly Woo.

More there were Debbie Turner and Conrad Prebys, Joy and Ed Frieman, Lori and Bill Walton, Teddie Lewis Pincus, Pauline Foster, Sevile and Johan Brahme, Barbara and Kent and Freundt, Brenda Baker and Steve Baum, Sheryl and Harvey White, Colette Royston, Mary Ann Beyster, and Joan and Irwin Jacobs.

Dolly Woo had these remarks about this gala kickoff to the 2 weeks of musical festivities for SummerFest 2010. "Community engagement with free open rehearsals, Encounters to explore the artistic process and Coaching Workshops with master teachers and fellow artists were just a few highlights of La Jolla Music Society's SummerFest. And Gala Chair, Barbara Enberg, delighted us all with a magical evening! See you all next August when we celebrate SummerFest's 25th Anniversary!"
