The Gala is Kaufman Music Center’s most important fundraising event, benefitting our Fund for Music education. Featuring cocktails, a seated dinner, and live music, the 2016 Gala was an unforgettable celebration of what makes Kaufman Music Center so special! This year, we were proud to honor world-renowned conductor David Robertson, and our own former Trustee, Solange Landau.
