Monterey Symphony gets big gift

Carmel >> Members of the Monterey Symphony have new reason to raise their bows and blow their trumpets.

That’s because one of its own members, Carmel resident and philanthropist Roberta “Bertie” Bialek Elliott, has bestowed a gift of $2.4 million to the Symphony’s endowment fund. Elliott, who is the sister of business magnate and investor Warren Buffett, has been attending and supporting the organization for over 35 years.
