What’s better than pairing international wines with gourmet cuisine? Doing it for a great cause.
Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 p.m., the Blue River Bistro hosts a World Cuisine Wine Dinner to benefit the National Repertory Orchestra.
Every summer, the National Repertory Orchestra takes audiences on acoustic journeys as it performs an entire orchestral season in about two months.
The nonprofit prepares some of the nation’s most talented young musicians for professional careers. Every year, more than 800 musicians, ages 18-28, audition, and only 89 make it into the orchestra.
Jay Beckerman, owner of Blue River Bistro, wanted to help raise funds for the nonprofit, so now, once a year, he takes diners on a flavorful tour of worldwide cuisine and wine.
Throughout the four-course dinner, chef Brandon Farr “will be displaying how one varietal can take on drastically different characteristics based on the appellation,” Beckerman said. Guests will enjoy pinot noirs from New Zealand, California, France and Argentina.
“Events such as this help us to provide the community with an amazing summer music festival and year-round enriching cultural experiences,” said CEO Doug Adams. “Last time the Blue River Bistro did a dinner for the NRO, it was one of the best meals I have ever had in Breckenridge, and I expect this dinner to be the same!”
The World Cuisine Wine Dinner is $75 and includes tax and gratuity. To buy tickets, call (970) 453-5825 or visit www.nromusic.com.
