An Evening to Remember – Symphony at Salk

The San Diego Symphony, led by conductor Michael Krajewski, and special guest artist Laura Benanti, a Tony award-winner and five-time Tony award nominee, put on a spirited show that delighted 600 guests and 100 volunteers at the 24th annual Symphony at Salk on August 24, 2019. The concert under the stars also featured spectacular lighting cast on the iconic study towers in the courtyard, which highlighted Salk’s microscopy and the paintings of Françoise Gilot. Symphony at Salk was made possible by many generous supporters who this year included Zenith sponsors Joan and Irwin Jacobs and Karen and Don Cohn; Golden Sun sponsor Tina Simner; and Supernova sponsors Martina and Dan Lewis, Tori and Terry Rosen, and Debra Turner and the Audrey Geisel/Dr. Seuss Fund. This year’s Symphony at Salk raised more than $1 million for the Institute’s unrestricted fund, which provides funding for the Education Outreach program and the innovation grants, as well as other needs such as support for Salk’s graduate students and postdocs
