THE HOUSTON SYMPHONY toasted a successful first half of its historic season at a holiday bash hosted by Adrian Duenas and Marcelo Saenz at their Montrose furniture showroom BeDesign.
More than 150 members and guests of the Houston Symphony’s Young Associates Council joined chairs Carrie Brandsberg-Dahl, Laurel Flores, Kirby Lodholz and Shane Miller for the event, which featured a brass quintet playing Christmas tunes — and an appearance by the big man himself! Santa showed up with sweet treats toward the end of the evening.
Among the merry musical supporters: Beth Wolff, Debbie Festari, Nina Magon, Chris Goins, Amber Elliott and Carey Kirkpatrick.
