The San Francisco Symphony hosted its Summer Soiree on August 7 — and despite being held in anticipation of its Opening Night Gala on September 4, the celebration became an evening to remember on its own. Gala co-chairs Rachael Bowman and Nicole Lacob teamed up to throw the alfresco event at Lacob’s Atherton estate, drawing some 70 guests from the Peninsula and San Francisco.
