DOWNEY - The Downey Symphony Guild's "Spring Gala" is gathering speed and will soon take place in the Regency Room of the Embassy Suites in Downey on Friday, Feb. 1, at 6 p.m.The guild cordially invites the community to this annual kick-off to benefit Music in the Schools and the Downey Symphony Orchestra. The evening will showcase a trio of musicians from our orchestra who will entertain with strings and mingle with guests answering any questions pertaining to the music and their part in the orchestra. The guild is truly happy to feature them for your enjoyment. The meal will feature a delicious chicken cordon bleu, served with salad, vegetables, potato, dessert and beverage. Spring in all its glory will be evident in the room regardless of the weather and that warmth will prevail throughout the evening. Tables full of enticing treasures will tempt and a live auction is planned. We hope you plan to be with us that evening and meet with guild officers who make these galas happen.
