Take your concert experience to the ultimate level and join us for the Philharmonic Society's 2016 benefit gala with multi-Grammy-winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott on Saturday, May 14, at Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Begin the evening with cocktails and a gourmet dinner in a gorgeous setting on the future site of the Orange County Museum of Art at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, with a musical performance during dinner by renowned pianist Rueibin Chen.

Then head to Segerstrom Hall for an enrapturing performance by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott. This exclusive Orange County recital appearance celebrates the duo's vibrant and longstanding musical partnership with music from their recently released recording Songs from the Arc of Life.

End the evening with dessert, music, and the exclusive opportunity to meet and mingle with Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Philharmonic Society and its nationally recognized Youth Music Education Programs.
