Got Light Announces Unprecedented Tent and Lighting Design for San Francisco Symphonys Opening Night Gala Headlined by Audra McDonald, September 3, 2013(August 27, 2013)
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
Entering their fifth year as San Francisco Symphonys exclusive gala lighting designers, Got Light announces an event first for the 2013-14 Opening Night Gala on Tuesday, September 3, 2013. In partnership with Blueprint Studios and Classic Party Rentals, Got Light is architecturally transforming the Galas Louise M. Davies Tent Pavilion for guests to revel within a modern, cubist environment immersed in an ethereal underwater glow for the Patrons Dinner and After-Party.
In a symphony-first, the Louise M. Davies Tent Pavilions interior will become transformed by Got Light by constructing a sharply angled three-dimensional geometric ceiling framework. Reminiscent of a cerulean blue submersed ripple of water, the clean asymmetrical lines will become dramatically awash in kinetic, undulating illumination by Got Lights expertly layered color and textures. To complete the abstract concept, the tents inner white-hot glow will be enclosed by a perimeter of rich blue, eco-friendly LED lighting.
The newly designed tent pavilion will host one of the Galas four fundraising dinners, as well as its after-party. At the formal patrons dinner, guests will dine while immersed in the tents surreal, minimalistic environment bathed in rich blues and whites. The additional dinners, located in San Francisco City Halls Grand Rotunda and North Light Court, will enjoy complementary, stunning event designs.
Immediately following the concert at Davies Symphony Hall, partygoers return for a high-energy indoor and outdoor dance after-party, with entertainment, drinks, and treats from some of San Franciscos finest restaurants. The Tent Pavilion, along with an additional elongated tent on Grove Street, will be transformed by Got Lights vibrant magenta tones and swirling patterns of oceanic light.
