What is WineMusic?
WineMusic is a concert series and wine tasting event that offers a journey for the senses by combining musical/performing arts and the culinary arts.

Should I bring my own Wine?
No! Through the collaborative efforts of professional musical performers and wine experts/sommeliers/winemakers, WineMusic will be offering a specific tasting menu where all wine is provided and included in the price.

How does it work?
Doors open at 7pm for a pre concert mingle for guests to arrive, to enjoy the initial tasting of the wine selection and to build acquaintances/connections. At 7:30, the music performance and wine pairing starts. The evening concludes with a post-concert mingle with the guests artists and attendees along with more wine and special custom crafted wine-based cocktails for purchase at the bar.

Careful research and thoughtful dedication will be put into the pairing of wine and the musical work which is chosen to create a unique correlation between sound and taste. Each piece of music will be accompanied by a wine pour from our tasting menu. After each piece, there will be a short discussion between the musician, the wine expert, and the audience about the pairing.

Do I need to know about wine or music?
No! All people are accepted regardless of your experience with music and wine. Our wine experts and musicians will lead the discussion. No one will be required to engage in the discussion unless they choose to do so.

**WineMusic's May 27th event, "The Perfect Pair," promises to be an enchanting evening of classical music and wine, perfectly curated for a memorable experience.

The musical program will begin with a selection of Johannes Brahms' "Hungarian Dances. These lively and rhythmic dances are sure to engage the audience and set the tone for the rest of the evening.

Next on the program is Ernesto Lecuona's "Malaguena," a passionate and virtuosic piece that is often associated with the flamenco dance tradition. This will be followed by Samuel Barber's "Pas de deux," a lyrical and expressive duet that showcases the beauty of the violin and piano.

The program will then feature Astor Piazzolla's riveting "Libertango," a modern tango composition that blends traditional elements with jazz and classical influences. This piece is known for its energetic rhythms and intricate harmonies, making it a thrilling addition to the program.

The second half of the program will feature Camille Saint-Saëns' "The Carnival of the Animals," a suite of 14 movements that depict various animals and creatures.
