24th Annual Vancouver Symphony Lovers’ Ball
Vancouver Convention Centre West
February 20, 2014


Five hundred corporate and philanthropic community leaders attended the 24th annual Symphony Lovers’ Ball. Guests gathered for the Domaine Chandon champagne reception and had the opportunity to bid on silent auction items before entering the ballroom for dinner. Prior to dinner was a mini-concert, followed by a live auction and full concert. One of the highlights was 17-year-old violinist Lucy Wang’s performance with Maestro Tovey and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

Over $640,000 was raised during the evening, with Laura Hansen and Mary Ann Clark as co-chairs. Since its inception, the Symphony Lovers’ Ball has raised in excess of $7 million in support of the VSO.
