Music For Food Sarasota Launch
The newly formed Versoi Ensemble, advocating for cultural diplomacy through chamber music, tours to Sarasota, FL to launch new Music For Food concerts. Brought together by a joint-orchestra tour by The Juilliard School and Sibelius Academy of UniArts Helsinki, performers of Versoi Ensemble in this concert include violinist Max Tan and violist Bethany Hargreaves, both alumni of the Perlman Music Program Suncoast. Violinist Max Tan is a member of the Sarasota Orchestra and serves as artistic director of Versoi Ensemble's debut concerts and tour. Under the auspices of Music For Food, 100% of all ticket and donation proceeds from this performance go directly to benefit the All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota County. The event is FREE to RSVP! However, a suggested donation of $30 per attendee ($10 for college students with valid ID) can be made at the door. Young children, or students in grades K-12, can bring a non-perishable food item when attending!

At our concerts, we transform music into food, nourishing ears and bodies. Now embarking on its 8th season in Boston, Music For Food was founded by Grammy award winning violist Kim Kashkashian in 2010. MUSIC FOR FOOD MISSION We believe both music and food are essential to human life and growth. Music has the power to call forth the best in us, inspiring awareness and action when artists and audiences work together to transform the ineffable into tangible and needed food resources. Music For Food is a musician-led initiative for local hunger relief. Our concerts raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger, empowering all musicians who wish to use their artistry to further social justice.
