Segerstrom Honored

Elizabeth and Henry Segerstrom at the premiere of SCR's An Italian Straw Hat

It’s safe to say that the performing arts in Orange County would have a very different look (and in some cases no look at all) were it not for Henry Segerstrom. South Coast Repertory was the first arts organization to benefit from his largesse; the theatre sits on land he donated, and many gifts followed throughout SCR’s history. But it is his abiding interest, his dedication and his love of the arts that has enriched our community and put Orange County on the cultural map of America. We join the applause for Segerstsrom as he receives the Carnegie Hall Medal of Excellence for outstanding leadership in arts philanthropy on June 7 in New York City.
