Welcome to Classical Pairings! A webcast exploring connections between music and the food and drink industry. We believe that food and drinks can be just as much of a creative expression as traditional classical music, and so we invite guests from the Indianapolis classical music scene and the food and drink scene (along with some international guests!), to talk about similar experiences and motivations–and sample some fantastic food and spirits. Our very first episode features Ron Smith, a beer judge based in Carmel, IN, and Jay Harvey, long-time music critic for the Indianapolis Star and host of his own music blog. We were hosted by St Joseph Brewery in the Mass Ave neighborhood, where our host and guests sampled their Testament Tripel.
