Seventh Annual Savor the Symphony Luncheon Brings Food & Music Together For a Good Cause

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Symphony’s Savor the Symphony Women’s Luncheon returns to Symphony Hall on Friday, February 8, 2019 to bring music and food together for a good cause. Widely considered one of the best luncheon events of the year, the popular Savor the Symphony has presented top talent from the music and culinary worlds to sold-out crowds for six straight years. 

The Phoenix Symphony is honored to announce Deirdre (DeeDee) Vecchione will chair the event and Jane Jozoff will serve as Honorary Chair.

“Jane started Savor the Symphony back in 2011 and the event has seen remarkable success, selling out for six straight years. It’s time to honor her for the incredible contribution she’s made to our community,” remarked Jim Ward, President and CEO of The Phoenix Symphony. “Both DeeDee and Jane have provided their time and talent to lead the event because both recognize the value that a thriving Symphony and educational programs have on the community. The Symphony serves as a catalyst in helping Arizona become one of the best places in America to live, work and play. Their leadership will ensure we continue to raise much-needed funds to support our community programs that reach 125,000 people each year.”

Alliance Bank and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona are the events presenting sponsors. Sponsorship and event information is available at

All proceeds from Savor the Symphony benefit The Phoenix Symphony’s Education and Community Engagement Programs, which bring the joy of music to over 125,000 children and adults throughout Arizona each year. Learn more about our community programming here
