CONNECT: interactive musical dining experience

Saturday, April 12, 2014

"When one creates, one becomes." —Paolo Soleri

Taste the music as we kick off our 2014 Spring Event Calendar with “CONNECT interactive musical dining experience” in the Café at Arcosanti!  From the talented musicians behind the success of last year’s Italian Night, “CONNECT” is a sunset dinner in 7 acts, each paired with live music—an evening of appetizing entertainment that’s sure to be a feast for all the senses.  Imagine savory roasted rosemary chicken with lavish cabaret songs, cucumber-and-lime sorbet accompanied by a steely Baroque trumpet concerto.  As courses are cleared and served, diners may find themselves singing along with a Renaissance round.  Join us for this culinary and musical adventure!
