Pasadena Symphony and POPS Dazzled Guests at Annual Moonlight Sonata Gala

Published on Sep 28, 2022

On Saturday, September 24, 350 guests attended an unforgettable evening of enchantment and romance at Pasadena City Hall. The festivities were kicked off at an elegant courtyard reception which was followed by a luscious dinner, live action and program filled with music and dancing under the stars in Centennial Square. The event raised $400,000.

Music from the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestras ushered guests into Centennial Square with a warm welcome.  Los Angeles meteorologist Dallas Raines and his wife Dannie hosted the evening’s program as guests enjoyed a four-course meal by Claud & Co. Popular songstress Allie Feder will perform an intimate set of standards in an exclusive performance.

The event honored two longtime Pasadena Symphony Association supporters as outstanding luminaries. Philanthropist Luminaries Freddi and Ken Hill were recognized for their charitable contributions to the Pasadena community and their longtime commitment to the Pasadena Symphony Association for over three decades. The PSA recognized as Corporate Luminary the generous charitable contributions of Paul Rusnak and the Rusnak Auto Group, whose longtime support has encouraged the Pasadena Symphony and POPS to flourish as the region’s preeminent source for live symphonic music.
