Join us for a light, 3-course prix-fixe dinner and an evening of Beethoven and Haydn at Oliveto Restaurant. Presented by Valley of the Moon Music Festival. Following the program, there will be time to meet the artists.
The performance takes advantage of Oliveto’s dining room — dubbed the Magic Room, it was designed by the acoustical wizards at Meyer Sound to enhance musical performances and conversation.
