Exquisite cuisine to benefit symphony
By Eman Isadiar
If you like fine dining, great music and tax deductions, we have the perfect event for you! Six of the area's most talented gourmet chefs are cooking up a storm on two consecutive Sundays, April 19 and 26, as part of a special event called "Symphony of Flavors" to benefit the Fremont Symphony Orchestra. The superb culinary creations are being served in the homes of the symphony's most distinguished supporters, featuring the cuisines of India, Italy, France, Spain and of course California, paired with the finest of wines. The evening will also include an intimate recital in each home.
Currently in its 45th season, the Fremont Symphony Orchestra is one of the Bay Area's leading professional ensembles. It is led by music director David Sloss - also founder and music director of Fremont Opera - and has been hailed by critics and the general public as an orchestra of the highest caliber.
In addition to its evening subscription concerts, the Fremont Symphony offers free performances each year for thousands of school children from Fremont, Newark, Union City and Milpitas. The symphony also conducts a highly prestigious annual competition for young musicians from all nine Bay Area counties.
The symphony's next concert is on Saturday, May 9 at 8 pm at the Smith Center of Ohlone College and features the music of Mozart, Schumann, Prokofiev and Ives. Details are available at "www.fremontsymphony.org".
