The Las Vegas Philharmonic's 20th Anniversary Gala was held on March 2nd at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Commemorating 20 years of success with a gold studded evening complete with cocktail party, silent & live auctions, gourmet dinner, and a dazzling concert by the renowned musical ensemble, Time for Three joined by members of the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
Proceeds from the evening going to the Las Vegas Philharmonic's education initiatives. The Youth Concert series brings more than 20,000 students to the Smith Center annually to experience a custom designed concert, which is often their first and possibly only orchestral concert performance. The newly launched Music Van project - bringing an interactive and engaging musical experience into the classroom and the community. Reaching thousands of children and adults alike. The community programs are entirely supported through charitable donations.
