La Jolla Music Society

SummerFest Gala 2024

Part of

A SEASIDE SOIREE

This year’s SummerFest Gala will be celebrated under the stars, on the shore of La Jolla’s famed Windansea Beach. Our evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in a hundred-year-old Moorish courtyard, then moves for dinner to an oceanfront lawn, just in time for sunset.

VOCES8, the acclaimed British vocal ensemble, will treat us to a short a cappella performance, after which dinner will be served. Save room for a trip to the on-site Gelateria!

This special evening provides the primary funding for La Jolla Music Society’s Learning and Engagement programs, which reach nearly 11,000 schoolchildren and adults every year throughout San Diego County. Your attendance at the Gala helps us improve and expand these transformative programs.

Please select your preferred level of support. Charitable donations of $2,500 per person or $5,000 (or more) per household are also invited to a Sponsor Party at the home of Lise Wilson and Steve Strauss on Saturday, September 21, 2024.

I hope you’ll join the festivities and share the many joys of music with VOCES8, family and friends.

With heartfelt thanks,

Maureen Shiftan
SummerFest Gala Chair
