10:30 AM Talk: Dining Out in Paris Before There Were Restaurants Culinary Historians of San Diego will present "Dining Out in Paris Before There Were Restaurants," featuring Jim Chevallier. Chevallier will describe how as early as the 13th century, inns, taverns and cabarets sold food that was varied but expensive. Street vendors also sold food and sometimes catered private functions. But it took 300 years for one enterprising chap to respond to complaints about prices before opening his "restorer" in Paris. Jim Chevallier began his food history career with a paper on the shift in breakfast in 18th Century France. As a bread historian, he has contributed to the Dictionnaire Universel du Pain, the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America and Modernist Bread; his work on the baguette and the croissant has been cited in both books and periodicals. He is also a contributor to "Savoring Gotham." Aside from continuing research into Parisian food history, he is also studying French bread history and early medieval food. The event is free and open to the public.

8:00 PM Talk: Beyond The Score - Symphonie Fantastique As part of its Hearing the Future Music Festival San Diego Symphony presents Beyond the Score: Symphonie Fantastique.

Hector Berlioz's passionate fever dreams changed the world of classical music forever when he unleashed his Symphonie fantastique onto unsuspecting audiences in 1830. This Beyond the Score presentation dramatizes how this surprising symphonic shocker came to be. Michael Francis conducts this unique performance that reveals the illuminating stories found "inside" the score.

The epic Symphonie fantastique utilizes one of the largest orchestras of its time. The music tells the story of an artist's self-destructive passion for a beautiful woman, describing his obsession and dreams, tantrums, moments of tenderness, and visions of suicide, murder, ecstasy and despair. This presentation takes an in-depth journey into the heart of Berlioz's life, his struggles and his passions, which set the framework for this remarkable work. Theatrics of narration, singing and dance are paired with refined imagery and illumination, setting the background for this emotional story and events surrounding this revolutionary composition.

Admission/Cost: $20 - $100
