Palos Verdes Performing Arts

MUSIC & Memories Gala

The Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion was transformed into a spectacular setting for the 27th annual fundraising event for Palos Verdes Performing Arts on February 6.  “Music and Memories” Gala guests enjoyed gourmet food stations prepared by Chef Michael Shafer, live and silent auctions and a special performance in the Norris Theatre, filled with songs from the last 33 seasons. The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the honoree, celebrated jazz pianist and composer and five-time Grammy nominee David Benoit, who also performed to the delight of the audience of PVPA supporters.  For more information about upcoming performances or joining one of the nonprofit’s many support groups, call (310) 544-0403 or visit
