Food, wine and a chance to meet the maestro are all part of a Sunday soiree at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Carrollton.

LPO music director Matthew Kraemer will discuss scores and conducting, plus play the violin at the LPO Volunteers presentation. Kraemer, the Adelaide Wisdom Benjamin music director and principal conductor, is in his second year with the local ensemble.

The 1:30 p.m. event at 1031 S. Carrollton Ave. is presented by the independent nonprofit group that works in concert with the orchestra through fundraising and contributed hours of support.

Argentine wine and cheese will be the encore following the maestro's presentation.

Tickets start at $35. Visit
