a unique concert experience which allows you to enjoy
world-class artistry and cherry-picked wines to benefit
arts education in Las Vegas.

Two dozen top musicians from the US and Canada perform “in your lap” in a salon atmosphere as you look out on the Strip through full-wall windows. The varied program is played with precision and vigor by the terrific musicians. The music is paired with excellent wines chosen for the occasion by noted sommelier Jaime Smith and is complemented by tasty hors d’oeuvres and excellent desserts. Truly a thousand-dollar experience for a relative pittance!

Drinking wine and chatting with musicians between sets made for a convivial and involved audience, invested in the mutual experience. Discarding the dutiful rituals of the concert hall was pleasurable, and weaving music into the fabric of social life made the art that much more meaningful.

The seedlings of the Festival

Alexandria Le, our founding artistic director, was at a classical music concert in Washington State in 2010. By being allowed to bring her glass of Chardonnay into the second half of the concert, she found that the taste of the wine unintentionally matched the music she was hearing. "Why doesn't this happen more often?" she wondered. Researching and discovering that no one had deliberately paired wine to classical music, she realized this was an exciting and unique way to engage people with classical music. Additionally, her personal mission as a Las Vegas native was to contribute back to her hometown community of Las Vegas. In 2014, she brought this intriguing idea to life when she curated her first wine and music pairing in New York City's SoHo (quote below). She launched the Las Vegas Wine and Music Festival in 2015, then created the nonprofit in 2016 Notes with a Purpose to impact a larger community with the arts.
