Partnership: Enjoying our Partnership with San Diego Symphony!

Herb_Alpert_and_Lani_Halls

Last night, Thursday, July 6, the Young Lions and their families were in for a treat!  We got to see music legend Herb Alpert and his famous wife Lani Hall perform at Bayside Summer Nights at the Embarcadero.  The San Diego Symphony gave us 30 tickets in the VIP section, “The Chalet,” to watch the show!  Grown-ups were treated to complementary champagne, kids had bottled water, and there were plenty of blankets available to keep us warm.  “The Chalet” is the most exclusive place to watch the show and we enjoyed every minute of it! The show was just dreamy and the kids got exposed to 1960’s and 70’s music. Mr. Alpert shared many stories from his life and his relaxed manner was so entertaining.  His trumpet playing is absolutely soothing!  At 81 years old, the man can still put on a great show! The kids really enjoyed hearing SD local Bill Cantos on piano and vocals.  It was a memorable experience and we are so grateful for our partnership with the San Diego Symphony. The Young Lions will help the SD Symphony by playing opening concerts at all Jazz @ the Jacobs events.  The Young Lions want to thank The San Diego Symphony for their generosity.
