STANFORD CLUB OF PHILADELPHIA NOTE  March 26, 2016

By Harry Ting

Last weekend we had a good time at the Kimmel Center at a performance of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra.  Kate Powell BA’10 arranged for us to get a behind the scenes tour of the Center, including walking onto the stage and visiting the Green Room and the beautiful Hamilton Rooftop Garden.  Here’s Suzanne Swann MS’88 practicing her conducting skills on us.

Attendees included recent arrivals to the Philly area, David Poneman BA’75 and his wife Elin.  After the concert, they invited us for complimentary desserts and drinks at their daughter and son-in-law’s restaurant, Russet.  A charming farm-to-table BYOB, we gushed over cheese plate selections from Italy, Wisconsin and Oregon and out-of-this-world desserts.  My favs were the almond ricotta cake, chevre cheesecake and bittersweet chocolate cremeux tart.
