Friends and fans of the USC Thornton School of Music celebrated the holiday season as they have for more than a quarter of a century – at the Charles Dickens Dinner. The Dec. 12 event, titled “Remembering Dickens Past,” raised money for scholarships.
A chorus of singers in period costume greeted guests with seasonal carols. Later, student performers were showcased along with musician John Fogerty.
Three talented student musicians – Annelle Kazumi Gregory, Tina Huynh and Max Quilici – were presented with scholarship awards. USC Thornton Legacy Awards were presented to Fogerty, Glenn Dicterow and Dana Gioia.
