A Winter Ball for the Discovery Ensemble
Locals in formal wear gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel on Saturday night for the 69th annual Winter Ball. The evening benefited the Discovery Ensemble, a 50-person chamber orchestra founded in 2008 by conductor Courtney Lewis and musicologist David St. George. Guests at the event included Cambridge’s Hannah Malenfant, Beacon Hill’s Devlin Hughes, New Yorkers Brett Jackson and David Rowe, Marblehead’s Genevieve Gadenne, and North Andover’s Meredithe Mallen. We also spotted Commonwealth Shakespeare Company Founding Artistic Director Steve Maler. New York band the Alex Donner Orchestra provided entertainment.
