Orchestra Nova, whose performances fuse beautiful music with engaging entertainment, paid tribute to RSF’s Kathleen Davis, a longtime supporter of the musical group and patron of the arts in San Diego, with the Kathleen Davis Day at the Races. The event was held Aug. 25 in the Star Fiddle Skyroom at the Del Mar Racetrack.
Led by visionary artistic director and conductor Jung-Ho Pak, Orchestra Nova is attracting new audiences of all ages throughout San Diego with its unexpected mix of live performance, art, education and multimedia. Kathleen Davis first discovered the group 12 years ago, when they were known as the San Diego Chamber Orchestra and has been a regular season subscriber ever since. She has been an active board member since 2003 and has also served on the orchestra’s finance committee and as chair of its annual Magic of Music gala in 2008 and 2012.
