Kurt Munstedt, a member of the Boston Festival Orchestra, will be playing some classical pieces paired with Italian wines!

Yes, y'all, you read right... we will be pairing classical music with wines from Italy! The amazing Kurt from Boston Festival Orchestra will play us 3 classical pieces and we'll drink three Italian wines that we find harmonious with the music!
