Orchestra Nova plans gala at Fairbanks Ranch Country Club


Orchestra Nova’s new season is off to a very successful start, with sold-out performances for the first two concerts of the season, and they’re gearing up for their annual fundraiser event “The Magic of Music” on March 17, 2012, at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe.

Chair Kathleen Davis and her committee of nine are hard at work to meet their goal of presenting a magical, black-tie evening of fun that will appeal to the orchestra’s long-time supporters, as well as to the young professionals who have recently become Nova supporters.

Committee members are Shirley Corless, Barbara Daly, Aune Garcia, Erika Horn, Vicki Johnson, Pat Merino, Marsha Nunez, Erin Oleno and Jacki Taylor-Dwyer.

The Magic of Music 2012 will honor Harry and Helen Miyahira who have been tireless advocates for the orchestra. Their involvement is representative of the enthusiasm and excitement for the orchestra’s innovative vision and ground-breaking music education programs under the leadership of artistic director and conductor Jung-Ho Pak.

“Community involvement has always been key to the success of Orchestra Nova, formerly the San Diego Chamber Orchestra, and this event gives the community the opportunity to share a fantastic evening while supporting the orchestra,” says Kathleen Davis.
