sf conservatory of music
The San Francisco Conservatory of Music is the oldest conservatory in the American West. Since founded in 1917, it has earned an international reputation for producing musicians of the highest caliber. On April 24, the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Gala was celebrated in honor of Colin Murdoch’s 20th anniversary as the school’s president.
Tout le San Francisco turned out at the SF Conservatory of Music Spring Gala (ably led by Gala co-chairwomen Tamara Fritz and Jan Buckley) to honor one of everybody’s favorite San Franciscans: Gordon Getty.
Philanthropist, vintner, composer and Broadway show-tune aficionado, Getty and his wife, Ann Getty, are longtime and generous supporters of the arts through their Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.
Brace yourself, San Francisco. It's been a long time since our city has seen this many showstoppers together in one room. The lineup for Memorial Day's Let the Sunshine In benefit concert reads like a who’s who of the music industry—Sting, Bob Weir, The Supremes’ Mary Wilson, Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. of The Fifth Dimension, Earl Klugh, David Grisman, Shanice Wilson, Tevin Campbell, Lisa Fisher, Jeanie Tracy, Ralphe Armstrong, Dale “Satchmo” Powers, the Narada Michael Walden Band and many more.
What could be better than capping off a well-deserved three-day weekend with a superstar-studded concert? Capping it off with a superstar-studded concert that benefits some unbelievably deserving charities.
