Join us for our Chamber Music and Chardonnay Kick-off Benefit on Saturday, October 6th, for an afternoon of delicious Italian food catered from one of Santa Monica’s most popular restaurants, a carefully curated selection of wine, and wonderful music performed by members of the Santa Monica Symphony and Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Musicians will include SMS Principal Flutist and long-time member of the LA Chamber Orchestra, Susan Greenberg, as well as internationally celebrated Spanish harpist Cristina Montes Mateo, and SMS Maestro and LA Phil violinist, Guido Lamell.

Susan Greenberg is an established local flutist and one of the Santa Monica Symphony’s most skilled players, and Cristina Montes Mateo is one of the top harpists today – she was the 1st Prize winner in the XII Edition of the “Torneo Internazionale di Musica” (Rome, 2006) and the 1st Prize winner in the International Harp Competition “V. Bucchi” (2009). Renowned Maestro Zubin Mehta declared her “one among those very few individuals who have reached the very top of her field.” She has performed for the king and queen of Spain and we are delighted for her to join us for this performance!

RSVP: Space is limited.
