Beethoven + Wine Festival

This summer seems to be the time to add wine to all kinds of events – from the theatre to the symphony. Yes, the symphony!

Seattle Symphony is holding a three-day festival, Sept. 9-11, to kick off its fall schedule. Some fine Northwest wines are being paired with – you guessed it from the title of this blog post – the music of Beethoven at S. Mark Taper Foundation Auditorium.

Concert tickets start at $9, and the wine tasting is $5 for four pours. The wine tasting begins at 6:30 p.m. each evening, followed by the performances at 7:30 p.m.

Gerard Schwarz will lead Seattle Symphony in all three programs, which will feature two great Beethoven works without intermission. The Symphony website has more information.

So if you enjoy the symphony and you’re a wine enthusiast, this event is for you!
