2018 Gala Event

David Low and Dominique Lahaussois, Gala Chairs

San Francisco’s Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director Sir Nicholas McGegan, is universally recognized as one of the finest period instrument ensembles. We are thrilled to welcome the return of PBO – this time for a very special event. Their stellar concerts have become Norfolk favorites, and we are certain they will once again present a stunning evening.

“This was a genuinely exciting night of music, carried off by the fine Philharmonia players with a singleness of purpose, bright, full-bodied tone that ran from sweet to sinewy as required, and supple rhythmic and dynamic control.”SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE
