BSO's 75th anniversary gala: a notable start for social season


September 12, 1990|By Laura Charles

A DAZZLING DATE: About 1,900 well-heeled symphon supporters turned out for the BSO's 75th anniversary gala, an appropriate kick-off for the Big Crab's social season. Themed "Diamond Reflections -- A Brilliant Past, A Dazzling Future," the fun fete followed a Meyerhoff concert featuring maestro David Zinman and the BSO performing music from countries that were part of the BSO's recent tours.

Guests, who were shuttled to the Convention Center by bus, were met by the gala's co-chairs, Wealtha and Jim Flick, for a cocktail hour on the terrace level. Later guests were led into either the Palace of Reflections where Gene Donati and Orchestra (who had the crowd going with the Electric Slide), or the Center's Crystal Palace, where the Flamin' Caucasians and Kenny Mann and Liquid Pleasure boogied into the night.

Familiar faces included P.W. Feat's Paul Wolman, who did the nifty decorations aided by new bride, Dorothy; chicken maven, Frank Perdue and wife, Mitzi; Parks Sausage's Ray and Evelyn Haysbert; arts activists Sue and John Hess; Harvey "Bud" Meyerhoff and writer-wife Lois Wyse; Dr. Andrew and Joy Munster; Richard and Terry Lansburgh; Barbara and Ed Brody; Bill Hopkinson and Mary Sue McCarthy; and Connie and Brooks Robinson.
