The Salt Lake Tribune – Before his virtual concert, Utah violinist shares 5 wine and music pairings to match your mood
David Park, the assistant concertmaster of the Utah Symphony, is a classical music expert, a connoisseur of wine and — because of those twin passions— a world traveler.
With his performances canceled during the coronavirus, Park, who is also an adjunct professor of music at the University of Utah, has been passing the time by listening to his favorite composers and, of course, sipping from his personal cellar.
“What I eat and drink at home,” he said, “makes a big difference in how I cope with the current situation.”
In the process, he has come up with five of his favorite classical music and wine pairings and shared the list with readers of The Salt Lake Tribune who might be missing the symphony or wanting to learn something new.
