We invite you to Symphony of Wine IX, an elegant dinner and wine auction, to be held on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at the new Westlake Village Four Seasons Hotel. This exclusive event will benefit the New West Symphony and its children's music education programs. The New West Symphony is one of Southern California's leading regional orchestras, led by internationally renowned music director Boris Brott. The guests in attendance at each event enjoy premium wine and superb food in elegant settings. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and attendees, up to ninety-three per cent (93%) of the event's auction proceeds, now totaling over one-million dollars, have gone directly to the Symphony's programs.
The Symphony of Wine salutes an honoree each year for their leadership and dedication to the food and wine industry. This year we are very pleased to honor Archie McLaren of Avila Beach, CA as our Maestro of Food and Wine. Archie is the founder and Executive Director of the Central Coast Wine Classic, where for twenty-five years he has led the organization donating millions of dollars to charities and promoting the enjoyment and understanding of wine. Archie is a worthy successor to previous honorees Bob and Pat Long of Long Vineyards, Justin and Debbie Baldwin of Justin Vineyards, Dan Duckhorn of Duckhorn Wine Company, Tom Shelton of Joseph Phelps Vineyard, David Breitstein of the Duke of Bourbon, Ken Volk of Kenneth Volk Winery and Wild Horse Winery, Frank Ostini of Hitching Post Winery and Restaurant and Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat Winery.
This year we are very pleased to again host the event at the spectacular Four Seasons Hotel, which includes a world-class spa and the Health and Longevity Institute. Symphony of Wine IX will again include a four-course dinner to be produced by chefs from The Four Seasons hotel. Paired with each course are outstanding wine selections graciously provided by wineries that include premium wines from the Central Coast and Napa.
The event commences at 3:00 PM with wine and hors d'oeuvres and a silent auction, followed by the dinner and concurrent live auction. The auction, led by a world renowned wine auctioneer will feature rare and high-end wines, wine dinners and wine-related trips.
A world-class symphony performance is costly. Ticket sales sustain less than one-third of the cost of a performance and our annual budget. Events like this elegant wine auction dinner are essential to continue the level of performance.
Please join us and support New West Symphony through the Symphony of Wine.
