The event took place at Donovan's Steak and Chophouse in La Jolla, and featured entertainment by classic pop standards master Steve Tyrell.


Celebration was in the air as San Diego officially welcomed the San Diego Symphony back from an outstandingly successful Carnegie Hall appearance and China Friendship Tour. A sold-out concert with the Symphony by violinist Itzhak Perlman combined with the opening of the new George and Hélène Gould Room made it a night to remember!
