Playing with Food Dinner with Smallman Galley

Smallman Galley
2016 Smallman Street Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15222

A good meal, and certainly good music, has the ability to create a lasting impression in our memory. But what if we were to explore the connections between food and music? If you’ve ever considered how these two artistries relate, we’ve created an exciting and delicious event for you.

We invite you to explore this creative intersection at our "Playing with Food" Dinner on Wednesday, March 22nd. Four courses from each of our virtuoso chefs meet musical performances by the talented students of Carnegie Mellon School of Music. In addition to our chefs' stellar dishes, the showcase of each course will be four original compositions by Evan Neely--created to match their culinary stylings and unique personalities.

The evening will be led by Monique Mead, an accomplished musician and educator, who has helped conceptualize and execute this project. Among her many projects, she is the Director of Music Entrepreneurship at Carnegie Mellon School of Music. Monique, her students and the Smallman Galley chefs are equally excited to share this collaboration and hope that you will consider joining us for an truly remarkable dining experience that will appeal to all of your senses.

Tickets are $60.
