Celebrate the rich history of the home where The Philadelphia Orchestra first made its sound famous—the glorious “Grand Old Lady of Locust Street.”
The Volunteer Committees for The Philadelphia Orchestra hosted On that Note on Friday, April 15, at World Café Live. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres kicked off the evening, which then continued with dinner and a live auction, concluding with a performance by Jason DePue and Friends. Additional musical entertainment was provided by a cappella group the Tonics, who also led the live auction.
Betsy Crowell and Stacy Maria Dutton were co-chairs of the event and Carole Haas Gravagno and Emilio Gravagno were honorary chairs.
