VIP GALA Reception


Food and Wine


The VIP Reception will feature the culinary artistry of our own Chef Rodolphe Mahe with a gourmet selection of hors d’oeuvres and wine - to tantalize your palate.

Chef Rudi would love you to know that he is available, by arrangement, to serve you at your own exclusive private functions.

Guest Pianist


Virtuoso pianist Darrin Blumfield will relax with the crowd at the VIP Reception and then, in the concert, perform the popular, but extremely difficult, Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor Op.30. Bio.

It's very rare you will ever hear this piece LIVE! We hope you will luxuriate in the experience.

Three Ensembles


Musicians from all three OC Symphony Ensembles will be there to entertain you in various breakout locations from the loggia to the stage.

The OC Symphony Orchestra, the OC Wind Symphony Orchestra, and the OC Pops Symphonic Orchestra.
