Monterey Symphony’s newest event aptly titled “Symphony of Flavors” was a delectable success. Hosted last Saturday at the Sunset Cultural Center by Danielle Rinderknecht (CEO and Founder of Goodful), Maddox Haberdasher, Ana Lola Roman, and Joyce Vineyards, the event aims to bring new tastes (and music) to the community before scheduled symphony programs begin.
“The Symphony of Flavors event is reinvigorating an already incredible establishment – the Monterey Symphony – adorning it with artisan foods, craft beer, and award winning wines, with a backdrop of local art and musicians,” says Rinderknecht, the events organizer.
For the “warm-up” DJ Ana Lola Roman introduced symphony attendees to upbeat ambient, progressive house, light techno, and symphonic dance music. Those in attendance were able to roam freely around the Sunset Center Terrace nibbling on Gluten Free breads provided by Goodful, pickles from Happy Girl Kitchen, and Organic Sausages provided by Cowboy Sausages. The Stu Heydon Blues Band was in tow with their epic blues tunes while Joyce Vineyards provided a classic selection of their extraordinary wines.
As the DJ faded out her dance music selection, guests were brought into the Sunset Center ready to perk up their ears for the Mezzo Soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano and Music Director Max Bragado-Darman’s featured works by Brahms, Ravel, and Granados.
