First Annual Director’s Council Dinner

With deep gratitude, Grand Performances hosted our Director’s Council members on Sunday, March 8th for a one-of-a-kind gathering in the underground dining spot KTCHN 105. Members enjoyed sweet and sour cocktails freshly prepared by GP’s Director of Programming Leigh Ann Hahn, and South African wines paired with a fabulous 5-course dinner by Executive Chef Felix Barron from KTCHNLA. The menu featured a Chicharron de Queso salad, Lavash and Snap Pea Harrissa, Preserved Lemon Lentil Soup with Krispy Kale, Apple Wood Smoked Monkfish with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes and Wilted Spinach, and the grand finale Blue Berry Cobbler with Malted Bread Ice Cream. After dessert guests were treated to a sneak peek presentation by one of our summer artists (sorry, we can’t say who!).

Launched in 2013, The Director’s Council recognizes those individuals who have made multi-year commitments in support of our programs. They are moved by Grand Performances’ impact in the community, the diversity on our stage, and in our audience. And we celebrate them.
