For many of us, music has shaped our lives and served as a source of joy and inspiration. This is certainly true for Arlene Inch. Great grandniece of the Austrian composer, Hugo Wolf, Arlene comes from a long line of musicians. “It’s in the genes,” she says. A native of San Diego, Arlene attended Coronado High School, graduated from SDSU, and went on to become Board Chair of TransPak, a shipping company headquartered in San Jose, C.A. After returning to San Diego in 2020, she joined the Board of Directors for The San Diego Symphony and became a member of The Beethoven Society. “I love getting involved, and I love the Symphony – It’s like coming home.”

It is a joy to hear from our donors why they choose to support this important initiative including Cole and Judy Willoughby who selected a bench in recognition of their gift, symbolizing the Symphony’s commitment to community outreach. “Over the years we have watched the San Diego Symphony grow in quality of music, size, and service to the community. When we saw the scope and potential impact of The Rady Shell, we decided to become part of it through financial support. The Shell is destined to become one of the jewels of the San Diego bayfront.” Illuminated benches line the bay and walkway leading to the entrance of The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park. They provide a place of relaxation for the community to enjoy the San Diego Symphony Orchestra and musical guest artists along San Diego’s waterfront. With a gift of $100,000 that may be paid over one to five years, you can become a part of The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, memorialized as one of the supporters who recognize the importance of music and community coming together.
