A Taste of The Arts

Boston Virtuosi Chamber OrchestraFort Point, a long time destination for the arts, is becoming a dining destination too. Fort Point's Boston Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra is combining your love of the culinary arts with your love of music and dance in A Taste of the Arts, a restaurant crawl of Fort Point, which culminates in a free concert on Atlantic Wharf Waterfront Plaza. 

A Taste of the Arts takes place on June 14, 2014 with the restaurant tour starting at 2:30 pm and the concert at 5:30 pm. Click here to purchase your ticket for mouthwatering samplings at Fort Point's hottest restaurants:  Pastoral, Tavern Road, Barlow's, Lucky’s, Gather, Blue Dragon, Trade, and Bee's Knees

Finish your Fort Point experience with a performance featuring a string quartet, guitar, piano, and the Urbanity Dancers directed by Fort Point choreographer Kristen Fumarola; with an outrageous surprise twist you never saw coming! The Ragazzi-Michelin Duo return, playing an exiting blend of contemporary jazz and South American music. The concert will include new compositions written for the ensemble and is free to the public. Some seating is available near the musicians, but many attendees prefer to lounge on the lawn overlooking the channel “a la Tanglewood”. Bring a blanket or beach chair, a picnic and enjoy!

Boston Virtuosi's A Taste of the Arts is featured in The Improper Bostonian's summer line-up, Primed for Summer: An A-Z Guide to Alfresco Adventures and by Boston Idea Week.

Boston Virtuosi is an ensemble comprised of busy Boston free-lance musicians who are colleagues and friends. BV members share the vision of making music in a spirit of true collaboration and insight. Boston Virtuosi musicians perform with the Boston Pops, Boston Ballet, Symphony New Hampshire and many well-known performing arts organizations throughout New England. This concert is one of a series, designed to promote the district’s cultural vitality with live music.  

The restaurant crawl is the fund-raiser for Boston Virtuosi, a 501 c-3 non-profit, which will help support outreach concerts in the underserved South Boston community, Visit Boston Virtuosi for more information.
