The annual fairytale-like ball for 40 ladies in white in San Antonio came to life with the San Antonio Symphony Ball, an elegant evening at the JW Marriott Hill Country Resort, during which some of the city’s finest families presented their young women to society. Hosted by The San Antonio Symphony League and supporting the San Antonio Symphony, the 43rd annual Symphony Ball’s “An Evening in Imperial Saint Petersburg” theme that honored the 2013 Symphony Belles.
For several decades, the Symphony League has proudly presented young ladies into San Antonio society who are the children or grandchildren of the members and participants of former Symphony Balls. These young ladies, or “Belles,” are part of a program that introduces them to the community with various service projects throughout high school, eventually leading to their senior year debutante presentation.
One hundred percent of the annual contributions from the Symphony Ball are donated to the San Antonio Symphony to support their ability to continue producing and playing wonderful performances. This year’s gala co-chairs were Vickie Kinder and Kelly Strange. Patti Anderson was Belle Chair and Danny Cuellar of Trinity Flowers provided the floral design for the evening.
We love a great ball and this one tops the list of favorites…until next year’s Symphony Ball, of course.
