Gourmet Symphony: Taste Your Music Benefit Concert

  • The Hamilton 600 14th St NW Washington, DC, 20005 United States

This summer we partnered with Gourmet Symphony on their Taste Your Music project. This community outreach project involves a series of music and dining events at local charitable organizations including Bread for the City, Miriam's Kitchen and SOME. Several Capital City Symphony musicians are involved in these events.


Join Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Symphony for an evening of curated cocktails, cuisine, and classical music benefiting Taste Your Music, the community outreach project that feeds and inspires DC's residents in need.

Enjoy a custom 4-course menu designed by Executive Chef Anthony Lombardo (The Hamilton) and Chef/Owner Andrew Markert (Beuchert's Saloon), in collaboration with Gourmet Symphony's artistic and culinary curators. From Mozart to Mahler to American composer Samuel Barber, each pairing draws inspiration from the lyrics sung, the composers' cultural heritage, and our own work with the project's Charity Partners this summer.

Under the baton of Maestro John Devlin, the Gourmet Symphony orchestra will delight attendees with its dynamism and musicianship. The 53-piece ensemble also features guest performers from Capital City Symphony, as ` as special appearances by acclaimed soprano Mandy Brown.

Tickets start at $99 for Loft Seating, other seating options and sponsorship packages are also available. Click here to purchase your tickets. Visit Gourmet Symphony's site for more detailed information.
