On May 20, 2018, AHS-LA held our annual fundraiser for the Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarship.

We were treated to a lovely afternoon on the shady lawn of Chateau Le Fleurs, Duquessa McGuffin's lovely residence in Flintridge. 

As is our custom, we were entertained by the recipients of this year's Finzi scholarships, plus a guest artist. 

The guest artist this year was Primary Colors, the jazz trio consisting of harpist/vocalist Liza Wallace, saxophonist Josh Johnson, and percussionist Ryan Knudsen.
