The La Jolla Symphony & Chorus celebrated its 60th anniversary season with a Diamond Jubilee Gala on Saturday, October 11, 2014 at The Westgate Hotel. The gala celebrated an incredible 60 years of innovative and beautiful music, while raising money for the symphony. The night featured silent and live auctions, Instant Wine Cellar raffle, and an elegant dinner by Chef Fabrice followed by dancing to music of the sizzling 60s. The gala raised over $66,000, $42,000 of which went back directly to the symphony to fund another amazing 60 years of music and memories.
