(Randex) The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia will present its Lifetime Achievement Award Gala in honor of Philadelphia legends Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff on Saturday, May 21, 2011 at 6 PM at The Westin Philadelphia. The event is black tie.

"There is no other duo like Gamble & Huff. As a fellow music lover, innovator and director, I have the utmost respect for these men. Without them, the popular music of today would have no soul," says Chamber Orchestra Music Director Dirk Brossι.

The gala will kick off with cocktails and a three-course sit-down dinner, followed by Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff's recognition ceremony and an evening of dancing with a live band and open bar. A collection of Gamble & Huff's biggest hits will be performed live by special guest artists and musicians.

Mr. Gamble and Mr. Huff are also eagerly looking forward to the event. "We are extremely honored to be recognized by this prestigious institution for the 40th Anniversary of the founding of our record label, Philadelphia International Records," the duo says. "Further, we are especially honored because we created the historic Sound of Philadelphia (TSOP) with a combined foundation of rhythm and orchestral sounds through our MFSB Band featuring members of the local orchestra community."

Gala Chairman The Honorable Edward G. Rendell says, "I am extremely proud that the groundbreaking team of Gamble and Huff came from our city of brotherly love. All Philadelphians take great pride that our city produced such legendary music icons."

In addition to a night of exciting musical entertainment, silent and live auctions will take place featuring unique and hard-to-find items, including travel opportunities, sports and music memorabilia, concert tickets and much more. Each gala attendee will go home with a commemorative CD to ensure an evening they will always remember.
