Music in the Garden
Lake Forest Symphony
Supporters of the Lake Forest Symphony celebrated the sights, sounds, and tastes of summer during the “Music in the Garden” event held June 5 at Mettawa Manor, the home of Donna LaPietra and Bill Kurtis. Students from the Music Institute of Chicago filled the air with music as guests strolled the meticulous gardens of the historic home. The featured performance was by violinist Ilya Kaler and his talented family. In addition to tasting stations featuring wine and other sweets and savories, a live auction capped off the afternoon, including a piece by Matt Lamb and a hand-knotted Indo Ushak rug donated by Job Youshaei. The event was chaired by Gail Sturm.
