A Collaboration of Classical Music, Custom-Cuisine and Projective Visual Art
Tenor Duo Gulley/Granner Present “A Romantic Affäre – The 24” Tenors, Master Chef and Visual Artists Collaborate to Dish Up Ultimate Evening Out with New Multi-Course Performance
Monday, August 19th, 7:00pm | Affäre German Restaurant
Award-winning and internationally acclaimed artists in classical music, cuisine and visual art are teaming up to bring audiences a totally immersive feast with Gulley/Granner’s next Multi-Course Performance event. Tenors Ben Gulley and Nathan Granner (who comprise the operatic duo Gulley/Granner) will present this unforgettable evening at Affäre German Restaurant on August 19th, with the theme of “A Romantic Affäre – The 24.”
Classical singers have a shared foundation of standard song repertoire, affectionately nicknamed ‘The 24.’ It is from this that Gulley/Granner draw inspiration for the event. From the Baroque period classics all young singers learn to the most demanding modern masterpieces, Gulley/Granner will perform 24 uniquely-selected pieces from over four centuries of music, using the history of their craft to examine who they are as artists.
Gulley/Granner have assembled a team of collaborators who, throughout the event, will also follow the theme of personal exploration. Affäre Chef/Owner Martin Heuser will custom-create a rich, five- course dinner, taking the audience through his progression from apprentice to master chef. Complementing the multiple courses will be wine pairings chosen by Affäre Sommelier/Co-Owner Katrin Heuser.
The audience will be further immersed in the experience by visual art, ever changing on the walls around them. Projective artist D. Nate Bogert, multi-media artist Jose Faus and programming artist Matt Bell will use digital media and projection to tie this sensory journey together.
These three artistic forces – classical music, cuisine and visual art – come together on Monday, August 19th, at 7:00pm. Those wishing to attend are encouraged to reserve tickets in advance, as seating is limited.
