A local chef has partnered with the Wind Ensemble to pair food with music selections. 

Pairing food with wine is a time-honored tradition. Great restaurants also pair atmosphere with food. But what about pairing music with food? Can food enhance a musical experience? Or vice versa? 

This week, our wind ensemble is taking part in a musical experiment with local chef, Jonathan Dayton, of Black Star Farms. The chef is pairing food to go with with Matthew Schlomer's musical choices. The sold-out performance / dinner takes place on Thursday, November 20th at Kirkride Hall, in The Village at Grand Traverse Commons in Traverse City.
