Guests included Tatiana Roitman, her husband Philip Mann (the new conductor of the San Diego Symphony Young Peoples Concerts), and Dana Mambourg Zimbric, conductor of the Classics 4 Kids Philharmonic.

The Union Tribune in a February 8, 2007 article about the San Diego Symphony had this to say: "The San Marcos school received a $3,000 grant from Advocates for Classical Music, a non-profit group in San Diego, to buy tickets for yesterday's Young People's Concert. The school serves a large number of children from low-income families and many English-language learners."
Here are some of the children enjoying the concert.
