What: A soirée musicale for Da Camera patrons.

Where: The home of Da Camera executive committee member Lillie Robertson.

The scoop: Following a round of cocktails and savory bites from silverStone Events, Da Camera artistic and general director Sarah Rothenberg spoke about her original music theater piece, A Proust Sonata: 7 tableaux en musique, that will premiere on February 11 and 12 at Wortham Theater Center. She also talked about Marcel Proust's life and work that served as inspiration for her piece. 

The discussion was followed by presentation of Gabriel Faure’s Sonata No. 1 in A Major with Rothenberg on Steinway and Da Camera Young Artist alum Boson Mo (just returned from the invitation-only Tchaikovsky Violin Competition in Moscow) on violin. 

Who: Patti Melcher, Paul and Carolyn Landen, Mimi Lloyd, Da Camera general manager Ab Sengupta, Carla and Rob Leslie, Michael Zilkha, Nancy Bratic, Laura Devitt and Steve Massad, Kathryn McNiel, and Heidi and David Gerger.
