More than 60 guests arrived to the Taliverde home of Mac and Russ Perlich within the Biltmore Estates on Feb. 22 for The Phoenix Symphony’s first Party of Note in 2018. The home is located just below the Wrigley Mansion and nestled among mature tree-lined streets. The recent remodel combines a contemporary design with energy efficiency, sustainable materials and natural lighting throughout.
Guests mingled as they enjoyed a beautiful sunset and cocktails around outdoor fires, followed by a family-style dinner prepared by Alexi’s Grill. Attendees were treated to a mix of Broadway and movie classics performed by Phoenix Symphony musicians Dian D’Avanzo, violin; Karen Sinclair, violin; Mathieu Paige-Bouchard, viola; and Mike D’Avanzo, cello.
In its seventh season, Parties of Note is a one-of-a-kind program offering a unique opportunity to spend an evening in an intimate setting with symphony musicians and friends while enjoying a gourmet meal in some of the Valley’s finest homes.
