On May 20, 2023, Pacific Chorale will host their annual gala, titled “A Night in Salzburg,” honoring local arts leader Richard Stein, President and CEO of Arts Orange County.

Held at the Avenue of the Arts Hotel in Costa Mesa, proceeds will help fund PC’s upcoming international tour, as well as its arts, education, and outreach programs throughout the area.

Following the performance, Stein will be recognized for his 14 years of service to the area and his leadership during the pandemic, with him receiving the Entrepreneur in the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award. The gala will include a dinner, a special musical interlude, a raffle, and a live auction.

“Richard Stein deserves recognition from the entire Orange County community for his incredible dedication to bolstering, advancing, and fostering the arts and arts education across the region,” said Pacific Chorale CEO & President Andrew Brown in a press statement. “That the arts continue to thrive here is in no small measure because Richard has made it his mission to uplift and advocate for local arts organizations small and large. We are deeply grateful to Richard and so proud to recognize him at Pacific Chorale’s gala for his selfless achievements that have enhanced Orange County beyond measure.”
