PineCrest pairs music and menu

PineCrest Inn and 91 South, both at 91 South St., are hosting a unique event, “Classical Tapas,” combining music and cuisine from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, July 11.

Tickets are $25 with a $1.62 fee.

The program features violinist Tracey Jasas-Hardel, cellist Benjamin Noyes and Chef Ron Medlock.

Inn owner Matt Mattingly believes pairing music with food is a first. “You have seen beer pairings, wine pairings, food and wine, dessert, scotch and cigars, but have you ever heard of music with food?” Mattingly said.

“We started with 10 selections from musical masterpieces from three composers from the 1800s to current day. We then took each selection for its time period, feel, tone, demeanor, attitude and then created a tapas menu to correspond with each musical selection.”
