A Musical Honor

| January 27, 2015 | Parties National

The Solti Foundation celebrated the life of Sir Georg Solti during its annual benefit dinner by awarding grants to young, professional conductors who are working to establish themselves. Guests were able to enjoy cocktails and mingle while waiting for the announcement of the 2014 awards, which included Cristian Macelaru, winner of the Solti Fellow. The night didn’t end there. Guests, including Chicago favorite RenĂ©e Fleming and Lake Forest Symphony Executive Director Susan Lape, enjoyed an end-of-the-night musical performance, which included violinist Rachel Barton Pine and mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. In honor of Solti’s dream, this event raised approximately $100,000. – Photos by Dan Kuruna
