2017 Annual Gala: An Evening in the French Quarter


2017 Annual Gala: An Evening in the French Quarter

It's almost springtime here in Houston, so you know what that means: GALA TIME! Our 2017 Annual Gala, "An Evening in the French Quarter," will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2017 at the Rice Crystal Ballroom in downtown Houston. The event will honor Franco Valobra, a most generous supporter of the Houston Chamber Choir.

Franco Valobra is the fourth generation of jewelers.  In 1982, he immigrated to the US and opened the first international branch of his family's business in New Orleans.  When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, he opened up a store in Houston; Valobra Master Jewelers

Franco is extremely active in generously giving back to his communities.  Inspired by his parents, he is inspired by other people's passion for the projects they support.  Houston Chamber Choir is honored to honor him.  

Our gala theme is inspired by the location of our honoree's first US jewelry store. The event includes dinner, drinks, a silent auction, and of course, music!  We hope you'll join us!
