On Wednesday, September 23, 2009, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) hosted Opening Night: A Viennese Evening, celebrating 40 years of riveting chamber music performances at Alice Tully Hall. With 200 guests in attendance, the benefit honored long-time philanthropists and chamber music aficionados, Jamie and Maisie Houghton.

The glamorous evening included cocktails, a seated dinner, a Viennese-inspired concert program and private reception. Chairman of the CMS Board Peter Frelinghuysen and Opening Night co-chair Harry Kamen gave warm introductions to the evening’s honorees Jamie and Maisie Houghton who shared personal anecdotes with the crowd about their love for chamber music and how they were introduced to the art by their family member, the late, legendary Alice Tully.

Immediately following the concert program, guests were treated to a private reception where they enjoyed delectable desserts and mingled with the CMS musicians. The evening’s Gala co-chairs included: Barbara and Harry Kamen, Barrett and Peter Frelinghuysen, and Elizabeth W. Smith.
