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.
