“Glee” star Matthew Morrison headlined the Symphony at Salk benefit Aug. 23 at Salk Institute in La Jolla. The 19th annual musical evening featured the San Diego Symphony under guest conductor Thomas Wilkins, in performance with the Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe-nominated Morrison.
The Symphony at Salk supports the institute’s scientific inquiries, which have yielded life-changing discoveries in areas as diverse as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, metabolic diseases, ALS, schizophrenia, autism, spinal cord injuries, crop yields and world hunger. Proceeds also support Salk’s educational outreach programs, which have helped generations of students discover their passion for research and explore careers in science.
