 WOODBURY, N.Y., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Bravo and Cox Cable will co- sponsor San Diego Symphony's Opening Night performance of their Ovation Series titled "100-Year Grieg Anniversary" at Copley Symphony Hall beginning at 8 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 15.
 A VIP reception will be held immediately following the performance in the President's Room of Copley Symphony Hall where a special awards presentation will take place to recognize Callaloo, the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture's community awareness project.
 The Commissioner's Chairman Sandra Pay and Executive Director Victoria Hamilton will be on hand at the reception to accept a special award by Cox Cable and Bravo honoring the Commission for their work in the arts to promote cultural diversity in San Diego. In addition, a special partnership will be announced between Bravo, Cox Cable, and the Commission to sponsor the fifth annual Callaloo, providing an opportunity for people to come together to celebrate the rich, diverse cultures of San Diego. Callaloo will be a community event showcasing local artists representing various cultural backgrounds.
 Cox Cable Senior Vice President and General Manager Bob McRann noted, "Partnering with Bravo and the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture to help support events that enrich our community is something we feel very strongly about. We are constantly looking for ways to support our area's cultural activities and we look forward to kicking off this partnership at the San Diego Symphony's Opening Night performance this Friday."
 Bravo Vice President and General Manager Kathleen Dore commented, "Joining efforts with Cox Cable and the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture in announcing such a program as Callaloo is a natural fit for Bravo which, as cable's cultural channel, is committed to partnering with our affiliates to increase access and awareness of the arts." Dore continued, "We also look forward to the success of the San Diego Symphony's Opening Night performance this Friday and to our ongoing partnership."
 "Friday will be a great day for the arts in San Diego," said Hamilton. "The announcement of our partnership with Bravo and Cox Cable will reveal a plan to provide support for our fifth annual Callaloo which in the past has sponsored forums and conferences to further the dialogue on multi-cultural issues in the arts and in addition to a festive Callaloo, the commission will complete a community cultural plan addressing the issues of accessibility in 1994."
