The theme of the January 20, 2014 festive New Year's party and potluck dinner held at the lovely Beverly Hills home of Dorothy Victor was in honor of Valeria Finzi, a prominent and beloved 20th century harpist and harp teacher, originally from Italy, who lived for many years in Los Angeles, and in whose honor the Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarship fund was established.
