WinterFest Gala 2017
La Jolla Music Society’s WinterFest Gala at The Westgate Hotel was chaired by June Shillman, who welcomed guests to the U.S. première of Malandain Ballet Biarritz’s Beauty and the Beast. Guests dined in the hotel’s Versailles Ballroom, then moved on to San Diego Civic Theatre to experience choreographer Thierry Malandain’s new full-length ballet set to the music of Tchaikovsky. Following the performance, the celebration continued at the exclusive after-party, where guests enjoyed drinks and desserts in the company of the evening’s dancers. Proceeds supported the artistic education programs of LJMS.
