Pasadena Symphony Association to Make Magic at Moonlight Sonata Gala

The Pasadena Symphony Association will host its annual Moonlight Sonata Gala on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 5:30-10 p.m., which will be a night filled with entertainment, music and dancing held at Pasadena’s historic City Hall.
Music Director David Lockington will host the evening as guests enjoy dinner and live music under the stars in Centennial Square. Distinctive to this year’s gala is lively dancing to close out the night. The evening will start off with libations in the cloistered courtyard. As dinner begins, members of the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra will serenade guests along their walk to Centennial Square, where Claud & Co. will provide a four-course meal. The program will feature a live and silent auction along with an awards ceremony honoring three prominent community figures. Dance music will be provided by Tony Galla and the Usual Suspects, a six-piece band that will perform songs from the Great American Songbook.
Another entertainer will be illusionist David Kwong, who recently published “Spellbound: Seven Principles to Illusion to Captivate Audiences and Unlock the Secrets of Success.”
The Pasadena Symphony Association will honor three Moonlight Sonata luminaries. This year’s Community Luminary is the Women’s Committee of the Pasadena Symphony Association, a dedicated group of volunteers who support the musicians of the Pasadena Symphony Association through the Holiday Look In, an annual fundraising event celebrating its 50th year. Northern Trust will be acknowledged as Corporate Luminary for its generous charitable contributions to the arts; and Philanthropist Luminary Margaret Sedenquist will be recognized for her long, charitable history with the Pasadena Symphony Association and the greater Pasadena community.
Centennial Square is located at 100 N. Garfield Ave. Tickets to the Moonlight Sonata Gala are limited. Individual tickets start at $250 and may be purchased by visiting PasadeanSymphony-Pops.org or by contacting Scott Vandrick, chief development officer at svandrick@PasadenaSymphony-Pops.org or by calling (626) 793-7172, ext.45.
