Taste Your Music!
August 20, 2015 by BFC in Fundraising In the Community
This summer, Bread for the City was chosen as beneficiary in a special community outreach project called Taste Your Music. Presented by two local arts organizations, Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Symphony, the program provides meals, performances, and fellowship to DC’s residents in need.
As part of Taste Your Music, this past June we welcomed a professional string quartet for a chamber music concert to our rooftop patio for the first time ever! The musicians performed for our staff and clients, sharing their talent and love for music with all present.
Our guests also enjoyed a refreshing beverage prepared by Gourmet Symphony’s co-founder John Coco. He served a delicious “strawberry basil smash” using leaves from our very own garden. The drink was the perfect sweet pairing for a sunny summer afternoon. In addition to their visit, Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Symphony are donating essential kitchen items for grocery bags to be distributed later this fall at Bread for the City.
As the summer project comes to an end, we would like to invite the Bread for the City community to join Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Symphony for the Taste Your Music Benefit Concert at The Hamilton Live on Thursday, September 3. This event celebrates the program’s success with an evening of cuisine and live music, featuring a full symphony orchestra with soprano soloist and a 4-course dinner menu created by chefs from The Hamilton and Beuchert’s Saloon. The Benefit Concert will also provide us with a platform to showcase our work in the community.
A portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit us as charity partners in Taste Your Music, as well as two other local service providers.
