It was an unforgettable evening of music, glamour and heartfelt tributes when the Los Angeles Master Chorale (LAMC) honored President & CEO Terry Knowles, who stepped down at the conclusion of the season after 15 years of visionary leadership at its annual gala celebration, LAMC Gala 2015, on Sunday, March 1, 2015, at Walt Disney Concert Hall. A highly regarded arts luminary noted for her key role in bringing the chorus to national prominence, Knowles has led the organization since 2000 through the most phenomenal growth period in its 50-year history. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams was the Honorary Gala Chair. The event featured champagne and hors oeuvres in Disney Halls dramatic lobby, a remarkable private performance by the Chorale conducted by Artistic Director Grant Gershon on stage, a gourmet dinner by Patina in PB Hall, the LAMC’s signature Surround Sing, during which Chorale singers encircle gala patrons and shower them in glorious song, irresistible auction items, and dancing to the music of Wayne Foster Entertainment. BNY Mellon was Gala Benefactor. Kiki Ramos Gindler and LAMC Board Chair David Gindler were Platinum Gala Patrons. The gala raised $475,000 to help support LAMC’s artistic and education programs throughout the year.
