26th Annual Symphony at Salk

Salk’s acclaimed annual concert under the stars and largest fundraiser of the year raised more than $1.1 million to support the Institute’s leading-edge research in the fields of aging, cancer, neuroscience, immunology, climate change, and more. The event was held in the Institute’s iconic Courtyard on August 20 and featured a breathtaking performance by Tony, Grammy, and Emmy Award-winning singer Ben Platt and the San Diego Symphony, conducted by Sean O’Loughlin and presented by Joan and Irwin Jacobs. The 26th Symphony at Salk was made possible by many generous sponsors, including Zenith sponsors Joan and Irwin Jacobs; Golden Sun sponsors Karen and Don Cohn and Daniel and Martina Lewis; and Supernova sponsors BioMed Realty, Rita and Brian Kaspar, Dr. Frederik Paulsen/Ferring Pharmaceuticals, and Mary Jane Salk.
