Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
Co-Chairs: Carol F. Henry, Susan Oman Gross, Eva Suzanne Stern
The first of The Blue Ribbon’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations was a memorable event with the LA Opera. The Eva and Marc Stern Grand Hall of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion was arranged into an elegant lounge using luxurious couches and chairs. Renowned artist and LA Opera Artistic Director Susan Graham showed the powerful process of mentoring talented members of the Domingo-Colburn-Stein Young Artist Program. Demonstrating how to refine their potential to create complete artists, members were enthralled by this behind-the-scenes experience and the transformation of each of the performers. The special day continued with a luncheon in the Founders Room where tables were adorned with beautiful floral arrangements and golden masks in honor of the opera.
