Morrill ; ii ; ; Christofle President & CEO Nicholas Krafft, Mary Schmidt Amons and Christofle Boutique manager Adele Bellitta, left to right, at the Champagne Reception. (Photo by Roger Farrington) The Christofle Boutique on Boylston Street hosted a champagne reception for Mary Schmidt Amons, founder of "Labels for Love" and a former cast member on "Real Housewives of D.C." We are told that Ms. Amons had an interesting story to tell the guests in attendance. Apparently, during filming of "Housewives," Amons often wore her favorite cross pen- dant, and it drew lots of attention and emails from viewers. The upshot was that when Amons contacted the famed Paris Silversmith Christofle, creator of the original pen- dant, they offered to release a special edition with pro- ceeds of sales to benefit Amons' "Labels for Love" charity, whose mission is "to make an impact on women and children in need throughout our nation." Proceeds from the Bos- ton reception benefited actress Fran Drescher's "Cancer Schmancer" char- ity. Congratulations and Best Wishes[ .......

A spectacular Sym- phony Hall Gala Concert on November 14 will mark the Terezin Music Foundation's twentieth ariniversary. Founded in 1991, the TMF began by bringing the Terezin compositions, mi- raculously written in the Nazi camp under brutal con- ditions by Gideon Klein, Pavel Haas and other mas- ters, to major concert halls and record labels in Europe and the United States. This Boston organization, dedicated to preserving the musical legacy of Terezin, presents internationally cel- ebrated pianist Garrick Ohlsson performing solo works, Maestro Andrd Previn performing the American premiere of his "Sonata for Clarinet and Piano" and members of the Boston Sym- phony Orchestra performing the world premiere of Mae- Stro Previn's new "Clarinet Quintet."
