Upcoming Events


An Evening with Gourmet Symphony
Sunday, July 8, 2018
5-8 pm
Smithsonian’s Arts & Industries Building
Tickets: $175, all-inclusive*

Enjoy a night of fine cuisine, wine, and gorgeous music with Gourmet Symphony in the historic Arts and Industries Building. After the Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia, many of its displays were donated to the Smithsonian, and some of the proceeds from the exposition—the first World’s Fair held in America—were used to build the structure. Inspired by that historic connection, both the menu and the program celebrate the intersection of ethnic backgrounds. The orchestra, led by John Devlin, offers a program of works from composers who immigrated to the United States, including Béla Bartók, Antonín Dvořák, and Gustav Mahler. Menu is to be announced.
