Las Vegas Philharmonic’s 20th Anniversary Gala

The Las Vegas Philharmonic celebrated a milestone birthday — 20 years of music, culture and educational outreach — in March at The Smith Center. The evening began with cocktails and a silent auction, followed by dinner and a concert by Time for Three, a lively trio that performs music from Bach to Brahms and beyond, including mashups of popular hits as well as their own compositions. After the concert, a DJ kept the festivities going at the after-party, where guests enjoyed late-night bites and drinks. Congresswoman Dina Titus was on hand during the dinner to present the Philharmonic with a Certificate of Special Congressional Commendation. Proceeds from the evening benefited the organization’s education programs and community outreach.
