Harmony of the Senses
The “Harmony of the Senses” is a special event created and presented nationwide by Service Arts President, Eric Weiss. It is the collaboration of wine, food, music, dance and art where each artist spontaneously interprets the others’ creations in front of a live audience. This takes place over the course of a 5 or 6 course dinner or cocktail reception. Mr. Weiss acts as the emcee interacting with the public and soliciting their responses to the pairing of each art form.

This presentation has been featured in New York, twice at The New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center, Steinway Hall and the Four Seasons Restaurant. At the 92nd Street Y, it accompanied the debut of the Meryl Streep narrated film, “Monet’s Palate.” Additionally it has been the opening event at The Fort Lauderdale Hilton Beach Resort and at The Conrad Hotel in Indianapolis. It was featured as the key presentation at the “Dream Catcher’s Weekend” at the Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana, opening the Food and Wine weekend at the Silverleaf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona with Taittinger Champagne and Morlet Family Vineyards from Napa at The Mizner Country Club in Delray, Florida. Its inauguration to the press was at The Onteora House in Woodstock, New York, where the London Sunday Times, People Magazine and The New York Philharmonic were in attendance.
The “Harmony of the Senses” is an appropriate venue for a group that can range from 10-40 guests. Mr. Weiss will work with the organization in terms of selecting the wines, musicians, artists and dancers. The event is designed according to the season, the venue and the objective of the organization. The presentation encourages use of local talent and could be sponsored by a diversity of corporations.
The time period frame from planning to execution ranges from 4-6 months.
The fee schedule is somewhat flexible depending on the specific presentation.
