Over 400 feted what are among the most treasured of gems in Pasadena’s cultural crown, the Pasadena Symphony and POPS, during the splendid plein air Moonlight Sonata celebration at Pasadena City Hall Saturday night.

The magical evening began with libations in the cloistered courtyard, then moved to dinner and program under the stars in Centennial Square.

Music Director David Lockington hosted the evening’s program, which raised funds during a live auction and paid tribute to three Moonlight Sonata luminaries.

This year’s Community Luminary was the Women’s Committee of the Pasadena Symphony Association, a dedicated group of volunteers who celebrate and support the musicians of the Pasadena Symphony Association through the Holiday Look In, an annual fundraising event celebrating its 50th year.

Northern Trust was acknowledged as Corporate Luminary for their generous charitable contributions to the arts, which have encouraged the Pasadena Symphony and POPS to flourish as the region’s premiere source for live symphonic music.

Philanthropist Luminary Margaret H. Sedenquist was recognized for her long, charitable history with the Pasadena Symphony Association and the greater Pasadena community, and delivered a warm thank you speech after a video which feature former Mayor Bill Bogaard, among others, who aptly described her active and giving community-minded history.
