Saturday evening, March 21, 2015, began with a pre-concert fundraising dinner at the Marmalade Cafe in the "Commons." Thanks to the participating concertgoers, the SFVSO will be the beneficiary of a nice sized check from the restaurant. After dinner, it was just a short walk to Founders Hall in the Civic Center where The Esterhazy Orchestra of Calabasas was in readiness for the Concert.
At exactly 8:00 pm, Maestro James Domine took the podium to chat briefly about the evening's program. He thanked the audience for their continued support, and introduced the Orchestra's Board of Directors.
