Parties of Note in Central Phoenix Delights Guests

PHOENIX -- On April 25, a group of 60 guests escaped the hustle and bustle of the city and spent a relaxing evening at a memorable Parties of Note hosted by Ginger and Don Brandt and Sharon and Dr. Oliver Harper at the Harper’s central Phoenix home.

Nestled at the end of a tree-lined road off of the Central Avenue Horse Trail, this hidden gem surrounded by a large orange grove was the perfect retreat on one of the hottest days of the year. As the sun set, guests mingled and enjoyed cocktails on the Harper’s back patio before being treated to a mix of songs from the stage and screen by a Phoenix Symphony Brass Quintet that includes Emery Harvison and Benny Nguyen on Trumpet; Shelby Nugent, French Horn; Chris Wolf, Trombone and Chuck Kerrigan, Tuba. Following the recital, guests enjoyed a meal in the orchard prepared by Sierra Bonita.

Both Mr. Brandt and Dr. Harper serve on The Phoenix Symphony’s board of directors, with Dr. Harper being the Board Chairman. They chose to co-host a Parties of Note in celebration of the Symphony’s 70th Anniversary.

Now 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.
