A Delightful Afternoon in Prescott Wraps Up the 2017/18 Parties of Note Season

PHOENIX, AZ. – Nearly 60 Phoenix Symphony guests escaped the 100+ degree Phoenix heat this weekend to enjoy an afternoon at the family ranch of retired State Senator Steve Pierce and his wife Joan.

The adventure began for many guests by boarding a luxury shuttle from Phoenix, generously underwritten by Phoenix Symphony supporter, Carole Downs.

Surrounded by acres of lush property with breathtaking views in Williamson Valley, guests were treated to a delectable western dinner while surrounded by canopies of mature shade trees and horses grazing in the nearby fields.     

The highlight of the event was a concert from the Phoenix Symphony Brass Quintet led by Emery Harvison, Assistant Principal Trumpet, Chuck Kerrigan, Tuba; Gabe Kovach, French Horn; Benny Nguyen, Trumpet and Chris Wolf, Trombone. Musical selections included a West Side Story medley and songs of patriotism.

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. The 2018/19 Season for Parties of Note will be announced in late-August and will be posted at phoenixsymphony.org
