Honoring Valerie and Hans Imhof for Outstanding Philanthropy and Leadership

Featuring Entertainment by Pacific Symphony Musicians
And the Big Band Sounds of JT & Friends

Join us for an evening that celebrates the Hollywood films, trends and celebrities that graced the silver screens in the early days. Come dressed as your favorite movie character, director, or celebrity—or any other red carpet appropriate ensemble!

This outdoor venue is reminiscent of the romantic Old Hollywood landscapes and your attire should be ready for any scene you may encounter, whether it be grassy terrain or a glistening dance floor. Please wear flat shoes with a wide heel to ensure your comfort, and plan for a layered look to accommodate any mild weather fluctuations.

About the 2022 Gala
The Symphony Gala is one of the most exciting and anticipated cultural events in Orange County.  Last year’s Gala raised more than $2 million to support the Symphony’s artistic and award-winning education programs. The Gala is not only a marvelously successful fundraiser, it is a “can’t miss” evening of entertainment, grand cuisine, and dancing that the leaders of Orange County prioritize on their social calendars.

This year’s Gala theme is A Night in Old Hollywood—a theme so vast that anyone can find an aspect for which to be passionate.  Our evening will focus on the Hollywood films, trends, and celebrities that graced the silver screens before 1950.  The event will honor philanthropists Valerie and Hans Imhof.

The Annual Gala is the largest and most important fundraiser of the year.  Every dollar raised at this event is used to support the orchestra’s award-winning artistic and education programs.

Gala Auction
Each year the Pacific Symphony Gala features a Live Auction with incredible travel experiences, luxury packages, and once-in-a-lifetime events.  Current sponsors for this year include Cunard, The Green O, Four Seasons Resort Maui, Regency Air, and more!
