In this fundraising event by Charlottesville's pioneering new chamber-opera company, "Amuse-Bouche" brings together the worlds of food, wine and music to explore a new form of musical appreciation. Think of it as a “Song Tasting”. As an audience, we will seek to find new ways of describing music, just as we might a fine Cabernet or the perfect stinky cheese. Studies have found that our experience of life is affected by our vocabulary. So let’s find some language together! There are no rules. Virginia native Will Ferguson along with award-winning recitalist Sari Gruber and Grammy-Award winning pianist Margo Garrett will co-host this journey of exploration.
This unique event will feature a four-part tasting menu from the acclaimed Palladio restaurant, Barboursville wine-pairings and to top it all off, a range of musical accompanying dishes from Victory Hall Opera. Join us as we expand our notions of palate, taste and the visceral experience of music.
