VALPARAISO | South Shore Orchestra is beginning its ninth season titled Fusion of Art and Music.

Seven of those seasons have been solely supported by the benefit funds raised by annual wine tastings and the fine wine dinner, with live and silent auction.

This year’s dinner World Tour of Wine is May 4 at Venue by Bistro.

Featured wines from France, Italy, Spain and the Americas will entertain guests with a travelogue of taste and flavor accompanied by the five- course gourmet meal prepared by award-winning chef Nicole Bissonette of Bistro 157 Restaurant.

Tickets are $95 per person. The live and silent auction will feature specialty wines, fine jewelry and original artwork.

All proceeds will go to support the South Shore Orchestra and its programs which include three major performances per year, a youth orchestra, a youth scholarship, and smaller ensemble presentations.
