The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art hosted it's Fall Into Street Art fund raiser this fall. The event was held in the Museum's vaulted walkway and featured hand crafted cocktails, live entertainment by Freestyle Dance Academy, and street-fare catering included service from the Farm Truck. The presenting sponsor was Neiman Marcus. There were many other in-kind sponsors including, Dave DiRentis Photography.
From the wonderful WCU Trumpet Festival I had the chance to get know musicians Liz Pfaffle and John Fowler. This year we had a chance to work together for their upcoming music CD release, 'Wilderness'... music of Alec Wilder for Horn, Tuba, and Piano. We took an adventurous early morning stroll into a very quite and little known park in the area. Liz and Jon were far more daring with their priceless instruments than I would have been! In the end it help yield some fantastic images with that natural, 'wild' look they wanted for their cover art. Here are a couple of images from the session...
It was a lovely August afternoon in Philadelphia as new members of the Philadelphia Museum of Art had a chance to stroll the gardens and take guided tours of the Rodin Museum. Ice cream was available for everyone to cool off as they enjoyed the courtyard and the pleasant late summer weather.
This was another amazing year for the West Chester University International Trumpet Festival. Among many other talented artists and educators, Yamaha Performing Artist Allen Vizzutti, returned to perform and hold a series of clinics.
The Winter Gala was an evening of art, music, and culture in the magnificent setting of the Philadelphia Museum of Art during their annual black-tie fundraiser. Guests were among the first to view Art of the Kano and experience what it was like to visit an elite Japanese residence in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The evening included live entertainment by Japanese drum group Kyo Daiko and DJ Deejay, Asian cuisine prepared by renowned Starr Events, and an open bar featuring hand-crafted cocktails, and a raffle with silent auction.
The snowy Philadelphia day did not stop the Gala from soldiering on or dampen spirits of the party goers! It was another wonderful evening at the Museum!
As part of the South Asian Bar Association of Delaware's speaker series, I had the pleasure of covering an evening at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP with the Honorable Sri Srinivasan. The Judge was unanimously confirmed 97-0 by the United States Senate in May 2013. The evening was cocktails and conversation among many distinguished guests before the Judge spoke in this intimate setting at the Delaware firms office.
