David Foster & Friends
The Salk Institute will celebrate 22 years of Symphony at Salk, its signature concert under the stars, with David Foster & Friends. Like Alan Parsons, it was Foster’s stellar production work that elevated him from wallflower to marquee, working with everyone from Rod Stewart and Alice Cooper to Madonna and Christina Aguilera. He handled Chicago’s knobs for their most successful early-to-mid-eighties period, co-writing several top forty records with the group (including their chart-topping single “Hard to Say I’m Sorry”), as well as being one of the few console collaborators able to make the Tubes palatable to the masses, producing and co-writing hit music for 1981’s The Completion Backward Principle and 1983’s Outside Inside.
Enjoy dinner and entertainment on the Salk Institute courtyard overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Proceeds support Salk’s biological research discoveries and the Institute’s award-winning Educational Outreach program.
