Community Music School will present their third annual Taste of Italy fundraiser with a lively game of Italian cheese rolling on February 9, 2019 at Angelini Wine in Centerbrook. Event proceeds will benefit scholarships and outreach programs at Community Music School. This event is presented by Guilford Savings Bank and includes fine Italian wines, cheese, antipasto, and a full spread of homemade Italian food.
Guests will test their bowling skills with a little friendly competition in a rousing party game of cheese rolling, a tradition in many parts of Italy. What is cheese rolling, anyway? It’s a hilarious Italian game similar to bowling… but with a wheel of Pecorino! Guests are encouraged to join the fun, either on the sidelines or in the middle of the action. Winner takes home the cheese!
Over the past few years, Community Music School has partnered with Angelini Wine to present unique benefit events that blend the arts with intimate guided tastings offered behind the scenes at the Angelini warehouse. Guilford Savings Bank joined as presenting sponsor in 2014 and Lewitz, Balosie, Wollack, Rayner & Giroux LLC is also on board as a partner this year.
Tickets are $65 per person and include all food, wine, and game entry. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit www.cmsct.org/cheese or call CMS at 860-767-0026.
