Memphis' Napa Cafe to host fund-raising dinner concerts for Stax Music Academy August 19th & 20th

Published on 07/16/2012

A HEART FULL OF SOUL!

On Sunday and Monday evenings, August 19th and 20th, the Soulsville Foundation’s great friends and supporters, the owners and staff of Napa Café, along with Frederick Wildman & Sons, The Wine Market, and Chocistry, are pleased to bring you “A Heart Full of Soul,” a multi-sensory event benefiting the Stax Music Academy! With six courses, nine wines, and live music by the Stax Music Academy, this is going to pair salmon with sax, rib eye with rhythm, and sole with soul! These special dinners were created from Napa Café’s love of great food, wine, and music and we hope you will join us in sharing these passions.

You will hear the amazing sounds of classic Stax songs chosen specifically with each course and performed live by members of the Stax Music Academy throughout the dinner. The smell & taste of the food and wine, expertly paired by Napa’s team, will round out an evening you won’t soon forget. Come celebrate what makes Memphis so special. Join us for “A Heart Full of Soul!”
