The New York Gala evening for 2020 tookplace in the stunning Weill Recital Room at Carnegie Hall on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. Presented by the American Friends of the London Philharmonic Orchestra (AFLPO), the Gala Evening raised much–needed funds for the Orchestra’s New York tours, its educational activities in the U.S., and its work with American musicians and composers.
The evening featured an exquisite performance by violinist Leila Josefowicz, a special performance from the students of LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts, and chamber music from members of the LPO. It culminated with the presentation for the fourth time of the AFLPO Lifetime Achievement Award and a live auction led by C. Hugh Hildesley, MBE, Vice Chairman, Sotheby’s Americas.
