The Green Music Center celebrated its fifth summer of programming at Weill Hall + Lawn Friday, August 4, 2017, with a festive wine-country evening. Guests arrived shortly after 6:00 p.m. for a champagne reception featuring members of the Santa Rosa Symphony Youth Orchestra, followed by the gala concert at 7:30 p.m., featuring jazz icon Diana Krall. The post-concert dinner, held at Prelude Restaurant & Patio, was catered by Elaine Bell Catering, with wine generously donated by Black Kite Cellars, Iron Horse Estates, Lynmar Estate Winery, and Martin Ray Vineyards and Winery.  A delicious Cheese course was donated by Bellwether Farms, Cypress Grove, Marin French Cheese Company, and Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company. 

Thank you to all our community supporters for participating in our Annual Gala Fundraiser. Events like this help ensure that we can support programming, as well as amplify our outreach and education.
