The Gala Concert promises to be a sensory feast of gastronomic and musical delights as the world’s best culinary masters chop, blend and whisk in time to some great orchestral favourites as guests savor each of the canapés prepared. Guaranteed to whet the appetite of food and music lovers alike guests can look forward to the concert culminating in a spectacular finale.
