Elaine Kwon is an award-winning concert pianist, martial artist, and Lecturer in Music at MIT, who performs annually at Carnegie Hall and renowned venues internationally, as soloist and chamber musician. She co-founded Savor Your Senses® as a performance platform for musicians/artists and wine/culinary experts to share their talents and connect people through creative, engaging pairings.
Acclaimed chef and rising star, Ryan Smith is Executive Chef of New York Vintners and has helped build it into New York's leading wine and food education center. Ryan regularly collaborates with some of the world's best winemakers, artists, actors, and musicians to create what he calls "alternative dining experiences." United by adventurous spirits and slightly bizarre senses of humor, Elaine and Chef Ryan have combined their talents to create numerous Savor evenings for audiences ranging from 30 to 300. Pairing events include music & wine, music & food, music & flavor, themed evenings, theater-inspired experiences and more.
The New York City Chapter is among the most diverse and dynamic in all of YPO-WPO. Its membership is limited to 80 and is by invitation only. Our goal is to be large enough to reflect a broad range of businesses in the NY Metropolitan area but small enough to offer members an intimate community for learning and networking.
