CANCELLED | Cooking in Concert: Fête de la Fleur: An Evening in France

THURSDAY, JUNE 11 | 7:00pm

3520 Central Pkwy, Cincinnati, Ohio 45223

* Unfortunately, due to campus gathering restrictions over the summer, we will need to cancel our June Cooking in Concert. Please be on the lookout for further information about rescheduling these cancelled events once we are able to safely do so. * 

Enjoy an elegant evening of French music – and fare – as you stroll through the streets of Paris with the CCO and Cincinnati State Midwest Culinary Institute. A CCO woodwind quintet will perform light classics from Milhaud, Bizet, Debussy and Ibert, curated for a wonderful evening of French food and music – with an Ohio twist.

About Cooking in Concert

Pairing fine wines and beers with excellent food makes for a memorable evening. But when you pair that combination with beautiful music, then you have something truly special.

Cincinnati State’s Midwest Culinary Institute and the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra have made that possible by cooking up a quartet of sumptuous evenings that will celebrate the food, beverages and music of Italy, Germany, France and Spain.

All four Cooking in Concert events will take place at Cincinnati State’s Summit Restaurant on its Clifton campus. Valet parking included.

Either way, the gift you give your special someone (or your well-deserved self!) will have a meaningful encore—all proceeds from the Cooking in Concert events will support free, cultural events for students at Cincinnati State that will include Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra chamber ensemble concerts.
