Our 2022 Honorees

Bob and Patty Biery are both California natives. They first met while working in the Finance Department for the City of Monterey Park and were married in 1973. In 1981, Bob and Patty moved to Thousand Oaks. Bob became the finance director for the City of Thousand Oaks, and Patty worked in the City of Thousand Oaks City Clerk’s office. After a few years, Patty went to work for Amgen, where she spent 15 years in Sales and Marketing.
The Bierys are Founders of the Alliance for the Arts (now known as TOArts). They support many nonprofits and service organizations including Rotary International, the Conejo/Las Virgenes Future Foundation, Friends of the Thousand Oaks Library, the Conejo Valley Historical Society, Oakleaf Music Festival, National Geographic Speaker Series and their church.
The Bierys have been supporters of the New West Symphony since its inception and are season subscribers. They “adopt” two principal musicians each season and recently joined the Music Director’s Circle supporting new artistic initiatives. Bob and Patty are active in several municipal organizations including the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers, League of California Cities, City of Westlake Village Finance Department, and the City of Thousand Oaks Finance Department and Cultural Affairs Commission.
For fun, the Bierys love to travel, especially to the Four Corners area of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico. They love the sights, sounds and jewelry of the area. They have 4 children, 6 grandchildren and many great grandchildren. The New West Symphony Board of Directors & staff honor the Bierys for their unwavering commitment to supporting the arts and music education in our community.
