UTICA — Music, wine, and fine food will be served when Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Concerts in the Court presents The Flavors of Spain, with guitar master Pablo Sáinz Villegas at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.
The Sculpture Court will transform into a traditional Spanish plaza, with table seating for the concert and sumptuous tapas and wine selections curated and prepared by Ruben Lopez, executive chef of Shade Bar & Grill.
Praised for his passionate, emotive, and open-hearted playing, Pablo Sáinz Villegas has been hailed as “the master of the Spanish guitar” by Plácido Domingo. His virtuosic interpretations conjure the passionate, playful, and dramatic musical heritage of La Rioja, Spain. As an ambassador of Spanish culture, he will also share his deep knowledge of the wine and food of his homeland, adding a special element to the evening.
Tickets are $70 for MWPAI members, $75 for the general public.
The price of admission will include the concert, samples of Pablo’s favorite wines, and a selection of Spanish culinary delights.
The Museum opens at 6:30 p.m. so patrons can be seated and sample the culinary fare. A cash bar will be available in addition to the wine samples served at the tables.
