Second annual ‘Sampling of the Symphony’ coming next week

By Staff | Aug 28, 2009

On Wednesday, Sept. 2 from 5 to 7 p.m., the Southwest Florida Symphony will host its second “Sampling of the Symphony” at Vapiano Restaurant, a dazzling modern restaurant located in the Gulf Coast Twon Center, near I-75 and Alico Road.

The Southwest Florida Symphony will have with them special guest musicians, Southwest Florida Symphony’s Concertmaster Reiko Niiya, and Elizabeth Lilly, the Symphony’s resident harpist. Along with this captivating duo will be a chance to visit one-on-one with the Southwest Florida Symphony’s Maestro Michael Hall.

Vapiano’s is a casual restaurant with a twist: customers use a “chip card” to personally order their food or drinks from the bar or from the individual fresh pizza, pasta or salad stations. With this new innovative technology, Vapiano is going to change the way restaurants do business. They are the perfect partner for the Southwest Florida Symphony, who is changing the way you listen – one note at a time.

In addition to Vapiano’s “Sampling of the Symphony,” the Southwest Florida Symphony will be partnering with the Hotel Indigo in downtown Fort Myers on Tuesday, Sept. 15 to launch our single ticket sales. For those who miss us at Vapiano’s, you will be able to enjoy the Southwest Florida Symphony’s music sampling and meet the conductors, Michael Hall and Joseph Caulkins. Feel free to saunter up to the bar and try a specialty cocktail prepared just for Symphony guests as well as receive discounts and one-night only offers that will be provided by the Symphony and Hotel Indigo.

As you meet and mingle, don’t forget to sign up for door prizes and raffles from the Southwest Florida Symphony, the Hotel Indigo and ArtFest Fort Myers.
