What: Mercury luncheon feting Lynn Wyatt.

Where: Couture salon of Neiman Marcus.

The scoop: The sounds of Vivaldi and Bach, performed by the chamber orchestra musicians, wafted through the salon where a group of well-heeled Mercury supporters gathered for a little midday musical dessert along with lunch from Neiman's Cafe Mariposa and informal modeling of the latest fashions. 

Mercury major domos were well represented — artistic director and founder Antoine Plante, development director Kade Smith, concert master and founder Jonathan Godfrey and executive director Brian Ritter. Add special guests Isabel David and Carolyn Tanner, who chaired the orchestra's gala last year, and 2016  auction chairs Judy Nyquist and Carrie Brandsberg-Dahl.

Who: Board president Lloyd Kirchner, Ana Treviño-Godfrey, Lindley Arnoldy, Lilly Cullen, McKenzie VanHoy, Cynthia Petrello, Coble Jorgensen, Rebecca Fieler, Alison Jefferies, Cathy Crath, and Julie Little.
