WALLA WALLA -- Wine, like classical music, can be an intimidating and complex subject. To help make the music more user-friendly, sample wines, enjoy a snack and participate in a discussion/performance of chamber music by Walla Walla Chamber Music Festival musicians.
Each Tasting Music event will explore one musical work in an informal but informative hourlong format.
Guests can ask questions and interact with the musicians in a relaxed and fun winery environment.
Tickets are $10 per person per concert. The wineries open at 5 p.m. for tasting. Here are the events:
Monday: Shostakovich 8th String Quartet, 6 p.m., Waters Winery, 1825 JB George Road.
June 13: Schubert Cello Quintet, 6 p.m., Walla Walla Vintners, 225 Vineyard Lane.
June 15: Mendelssohn C minor Piano Trio, 6 p.m., Morrison Lane, 201 W. Main St.
June 19: Mozart String Quartet in G Major K. 387, 6 p.m., College Cellars of Walla Walla, 500 Tausick Way.
