SummerFest Celebrates 25th Silver Anniversary Gala
at Joan and Irwin Jacobs' Home
The La Jolla Music Society celebrated their 25th SummerFest gala August 20th, 2011 at the beautiful La Jolla home of patrons Joan and Irwin Jacobs. The gala is part of a month long series of music concerts and educational outreach programs.
This gala event was sold-out at 250 guests due in part to the unique venue. There was quite a wait list too.
Black tie attired guests arrived first for the reception. Champagne in flutes, signature cocktails in martini glasses, and a perfect Pacific sunset were served up to patrons.
Among the guests there were SummerFest 25th Anniversary Chair Dolly Woo and her husband Victor Woo, SummerFest Music Director Cho-Liang Lin and his wife Debbie Lin, La Jolla Music Society President and Artistic Director Christopher Beach, SummerFest Gala chairs Barbara Enberg (Barbara is the wife of sportscaster Dick Enberg) and Linda Howard, and SummerFest Gala consultant Margaret Stevens Grossman.
Gala Co-Chairs Barbara Enberg and Linda Howard
A superb concert followed the cocktail reception in the Jacobs’s multi-use concert hall.
Among the selections were Haydn’s Adagio from Violin Concerto No. 1 in C Major, Hob. Vila:1 with Cho-Liang Lin on Violin, and the Éclat Quartet of Sonja Harasim and Xiaoxiao Qiang performing on violins, Zachary Carrettin performing on viola, and Lachezar Kostov performing on cello.
Other highlights included Shostakovich’s Three Duets for Two Violins and Piano with Cho-Liang Lin and Valerie Kim performing on violins, and Dominique Kim performing on piano. Yet another highlight was the Brazilian brothers Sergio and Odair Assad performing on their guitars. And they were a hit too!
Dinner with the artists followed poolside.
Catering creations by Campine included a seared striped seabass with artichoke relish with a dessert of sliced Fitzgerald Peach with pecans, caramel and fluffy cream.
The night continued with mini-cupcakes and coffee and dancing to a DJ.
Among those still there until late were Rita and Richard Atkinson, Jim Beyster, Brenda Baker and Steve Baum, Drs. Sevil and Johan Brahme, Marsha and Bill Chandler, Linda Chester and Dr. Kenneth Rind, Karen and Don Cohn, Wendy and Bill Brody, Valerie and Harry Cooper, Elaine and Dave Darwin, Bob and Bea Epsten, Olivia and Peter Farrell, Lael and Jay Kovtun, Sally Fuller, Gigi Fenley, and Colette and Ivor Royston.
More there included Sally and John Thornton, Mary Walshok, Lori and Bill Walton, he’s the basketball Hall of Famer, and Faye Wilson.
Tray passed party favors at the end included stick on mustaches….. Almost everyone got into the act. Harvey White got creative and used his to bridge a 'uni-brow."
There were quite a bevy of beauties who showed their inner fun while sporting a mustache....only Sheryl White was brave enough to be photographed with her temporary 'stache!'
All in all a superlative evening.
