Benefiting the Esperanza Azteca LA Youth Orchestra
Honoring Plácido Domingo
More than 850 guests attended the inaugural Esperanza Azteca Los Angeles Youth Orchestra Concert and Tribute Gala Friday evening September 23 at the historic Ricardo Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. The gala, presented by Grupo Salinas, Azteca America and the Andrew Nikou Foundation, honored the legendary Spanish tenor, conductor and arts administrator, Plácido Domingo. The first ever concert and gala event raised vital funds to support the Esperanza Azteca Los Angeles Youth Orchestra, the first U.S.-based chapter of the Esperanza Azteca youth orchestra program, and its 198 young musicians from the Los Angeles area.
