On Sept. 3, 2015, Gourmet Symphony and Capital City Orchestra hosted the Taste Your Music benefit to raise money for three nonprofits working to fight hunger in the DC area: Miriam's Kitchen, Bread for the City and So Others Might Eat.
At the benefit, each course and cocktail was specially crafted to complement a piece of classical music.
Taste Your Music strives to examine the intersection of culinary arts and classical music. The goal is not only to partner with charitable organizations to help fight hunger, but to establish a "renewed commitment to socially conscious arts programming."
