The Classical Connoisseur

Classical Connoisseur
As the Classical Connoisseur Maestra Kim “conducts” chamber musicians and guides listeners through a parallel tasting tasting of music and wine.

These events are a fun way to enjoy a curated concert while exploring one’s ear and taste palates.


Please note that the wine component is optional! A “wine-tasting approach” to music is the key!


The Classical Connoisseur          
Explore your palates at a wine and music tasting event with the 2018 KISMET Artist-in-Residence, composer and conductor Kim Diehnelt. Joined by violinist Tracey Jasas-Hardel and cellist Ben Noyes, Maestra Diehnelt will guide you through a sampling of select wines and an exploration of how we experience music. 
Presented by the KISMET Foundation.
