Approximately 75 donors and supporters gathered at the fabulous Hubbard home in Palm Desert to enjoy cocktails, appetizers and a 30 minute musical salon by Waring Competition winner Brian Lin.
The crowd was entranced by a selection that included Chopin, Beethoven and Liszt. Many of the donors present were underwriters of the Nov. 4 performance at the McCallum that featured three former Waring winners in a one-time only performance.
