Garden party becoming a tradition

DOWNEY - Last summer about this time, the Downey Symphony's garden party was so much fun, so delicious, and so successful, the Board made an easy decision: we must do this again.So invitations are now in the mail for the Second Annual Symphony Garden Party, 2009 edition, which promises all the delights of the first affair and some wonderful new twists of its own. The date is Sunday afternoon, Sept. 20, from 4-7 p.m., in the spacious garden of Dr. Walter Kelley, who served many years on the Symphony Board and is delighted to offer his flower-bordered lawns and spreading patio for this fundraising event. Live music is on the bill, of course, starting with fun stuff offered by brass and wind students from USC. And then pianist Pauline Yang, who wowed her Downey audience last fall as soloist with the orchestra, will play for us, right there, up close and dazzling. Reservations at $75 benefit the Downey Symphony and its Music in the Schools program. For information and reservations, please call (562) 928-4122.
