Orchestra Nova benefit for music education to have 1920s theme

Guests will step into a Gatsby-inspired fantasy world at a benefit for Orchestra Nova’s education programs, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, May 15, hosted by Diane Lekven and Jordan Perez at 15150 San Dieguito Road in Rancho Santa Fe. Dressed in 1920’s attire, the waitstaff will serve lunch, women will model the latest fashions, and automobiles from the time period will add to the fun. Orchestra Nova musicians and local students will provide the music.

At the party, artistic director conductor Jung-Ho Pak will share his passion and vision for music education in the schools, and describe how he and the orchestra intend to keep musical dreams alive for students throughout the county.

The event will also feature silent and live auctions for wine, jewelry, dinners, parties, vacation packages and more. A children’s room will be provided with lunch, games and entertainment, supervised by a sitting service.

Tickets are $100 (tables for 8 at $700) or VIP tickets $200, which include Champagne with lunch and a photo with Jung-Ho Pak (tables for 8 at $1,400).

Children under age 12 attend for free if accompanied by an adult.
