Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Symphony co-host a celebratory evening of curated cocktails, cuisine, and music benefiting Taste Your Music, the community outreach project that feeds and inspires DC’s residents in need. A portion of the event’s proceeds benefit Bread for the City, Miriam’s Kitchen, and So Others Might Eat.
Following Gourmet Symphony’s celebrated approach to reimagining the symphonic music experience, the Benefit Concert will showcase a menu of curated cocktails, cuisine, and classical music that highlights the cultural and historical connections between food and music. The nontraditional atmosphere encourages guests to explore the venue, meet the musicians, and engage with the orchestra and each other through conversation and social media.
The evening’s program features a four-course dinner and paired beverage menu masterfully designed by Taste Your Music culinary partners, Executive Chef Anthony Lombardo of The Hamilton and Andrew Markert of Beuchert’s Saloon, in collaboration with Gourmet Symphony’s artistic and culinary curators. Each pairing draws inspiration from the composers’ cultural heritage, the lyrics sung, and Taste Your Music’s custom-designed meals, which were served to and enjoyed by hundreds of DC residents in need over the summer.
