The fourth annual Savor the Symphony Luncheon to benefit Phoenix Symphony played once again to a sold-out audience. Billed as a women’s luncheon, the crowd was almost entirely female – except for a few brave men. The formula works: morning libations on arrival, good-looking male vocalists and a luncheon prepared by a renowned Valley chef.
This year’s entertainers were the Motown group Human Nature. The four singers went to high school together in a small town in Australia, formed a group that blended their beautiful voices and eventually landed in Las Vegas, where they perform at the Venetian. Luncheon guests attended the morning rehearsal as they prepared for three weekend performances with Symphony. Then they enjoyed a luncheon specially created by Sanctuary’s Executive Chef Beau MacMillan, winner of Iron Chef America and a Food Network star.
Sue Glawe, vice president of community relations, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, and Karrin Taylor, senior vice president, DMB Associates, co-chaired the luncheon. Nicole Stanton served as the honorary chair. Former newscaster Kim Covington, now with Arizona Community Foundation, was the afternoon’s emcee.
Savor the Symphony helps support the Symphony’s Education & Community Engagement programs.
