François Gilot-Salk graciously gave welcome, as Honorary Chair, to supporters and sponsors at the 18th annual Symphony at Salk: a concert under the stars. The celestial night sky set the stage for a concert featuring singer and actress Katharine McPhee, accompanied by our own San Diego Symphony led by distinguished conductor, Maestro Thomas Wilkins. The astral premiere gala helps fund the Salk Institute’s preeminent biological research and its community relations programs, a principle since the 1960’s.
