Terroir008: deep heart's core
* NOTE: Tickets MUST be purchased in advance by Friday, February 8. *
Terroir New Music continues its event series at the Tampa Museum of Art with Terroir008: DEEP HEART’S CORE, a program of music by living composers paired with a specially crafted menu by SaltBlock Hospitality. Music on the program has been selected to correspond with the ongoing museum exhibits Robert Indiana: A Sculpture Retrospective and Yayoi Kusama: LOVE IS CALLING. The event will take place at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, February 13 at the Tampa Museum of Art.
The musical program will feature acoustic and electronic music by local composers Baljinder Sekhon (USF faculty) and Tyler Kline, and works by Shelley Washington, Valerie Coleman, and Vera Ivanova. Each piece on the program has been chosen with the concept of SEASON OF LOVE in mind: directly, with pieces like Sekhon’s let me love you and Ivanova’s In the Deep Heart’s Core, and indirectly including Washington’s Silk and Kline’s Honeycomb. The performance will feature USF faculty pianist Eunmi Ko and flutist Francesca Arnone and USF student double bassist Keon Sahebkar, and USF Alum percussionist Zachary Hale. Special thanks to the The Music Gallery, Steinway & Sons of Tampa Bay of Clearwater for providing and moving the piano used in this event and to the USF School of Music for faculty support.
The five-course meal from SaltBlock, served family style, is designed with the art and music in mind. Food offerings will include seasonal fruits and aged cheeses, a root-vegetable bisque, spiced apple tart with bourbon butter ice cream, and more. Suggested optional beverage pairings will be available through a cash bar.
Tickets for this event range from $110-125 per person: $110 student/museum member price and $125 for not-yet-members. Ticket price includes a 5-course meal specifically crafted to pair with the musical program and admission to the museum galleries. Doors for the event will open at 6:30 PM, when attendees will be invited to enjoy a cocktail and view the galleries - music and food service begins at 7:00 PM. The Tampa Museum of Art is located at 120 Gasparilla Plaza, Tampa, FL 33602.

Terroir New Music is a Tampa-based contemporary music series that seeks to create a unique musical and dining experience, as well as cultivate a community around local food, beverage, and music by presenting new music in collaboration with local bars, breweries, and restaurants. The word “terroir” (ter-wahr) is defined as the complete natural environment that a particular wine is produced within, consisting of factors such as the soil, climate, and topography. The environment is what influences the unique characteristics of a particular wine, so we thought it was fitting to create a music series with a focus on local composers paired with local food or drink.
The Tampa Museum of Art opened its award-winning new building in 2010 with a commitment to provide innovative public programs with a focus on ancient, modern, and contemporary art. The Museum balances a growing collection, including one of the largest Greek and Roman antiquities collections in the southeastern United States, with a dynamic annual schedule of special exhibitions. The region’s largest institution devoted to the art of our time, the Museum has fostered a reputation for presenting contemporary photography and new media; most notably, Leo Villareal’s Sky (Tampa), a 14,000-square-foot LED installation on its south façade, has become an iconic landmark for Tampa. Since its founding in 1979, the Museum has been dedicated to providing quality education to students and adults, with more than half of its programs offered free of charge. The Museum is home to Riverwalk Cafe at TMA, a Cafe featuring favorite local flavors overlooking the Hillsborough River, and has emerged as Tampa’s premier venue for special events.
About SaltBlock Hospitality: With one gig, and two guys who were fanatically passionate about food. An ordinary Christmas party was transformed into a food centric spectacle centered around an oak burning fire and seafood sizzling on the surface of a large Himalayan salt block. We had created an experience for our guests that was something larger than just food, and a new endeavor had officially begun. While we knew we were onto something, we had no idea our love for food would develop into such a thriving business. We look forward to providing genuine hospitality to our clients everyday, as well as progressing our craft within the hospitality industry. We hope that our passion for what we do can translate into a one-of-a-kind experience for our clients no matter the scope of the project.
