San Antonio Symphony Ball Goes Cuban

THE SCENE: Sunset in Old Havana, the theme of the 2016 Symphony Ball, brought to life an era of days gone by on a beautiful evening in the heart of San Antonio’s outlying hill country. The San Antonio Symphony League’s Symphony Belle presentation was held at The J.W. Marriott Resort and 26 belles were presented at this year’s event chaired by Kathryn and Ed Howie.
THE VIBE: The presentation, set to the musical selections by the symphony itself, set the stage for a magical evening as the young ladies in white took their bows toward entering society. Following the presentation, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing to the tunes of Finding Friday.
THE CAUSE: By way of its support, the San Antonio Symphony League preserves and promotes the live performance of Symphony music for the San Antonio area. To date, the League’s annual Symphony Ball has over one million dollars to benefit the San Antonio Symphony.
