THE SCENE: A Winter’s Tale, the theme of the 2015 Symphony Ball, came to life 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 Hill Country Resort and Spa. The Symphony Belles, all 28 of them, made their bow at this year’s debutante presentation.
THE VIBE: The presentation itself, set to musical selections from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set the stage for a magical evening. Following the presentation, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing to the tunes of Chinatown.
THE CAUSE: This year’s gala was chaired by Kathy and Andrew Stell. The San Antonio Symphony League preserves and promotes the live performance of symphonic music in the San Antonio area. To date, the League’s annual Symphony Ball has raised over one million dollars to benefit the San Antonio Symphony.
