CENTERBROOK — Community Music School will present their fourth annual Taste of Italy fundraiser with a lively game of Italian cheese rolling on Feb. 22 at Angelini Wine in Centerbrook.

Guests will test their bowling skills with a little friendly competition in a rousing party game of cheese rolling, a tradition in many parts of Italy.

What is cheese rolling, anyway? It’s a hilarious Italian game similar to bowling — but with a wheel of Pecorino. Guests are encouraged to join the fun, either on the sidelines or in the middle of the action. Winner takes home the cheese.

Guests may also sample fine Italian wines, cheese, antipasto, and a full spread of locally made Italian food. The event is presented by Guilford Savings Bank.

Event proceeds will benefit scholarships and outreach programs at Community Music School.

Tickets are $65 per person and include all food, wine, and game entry. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit or call CMS at 860-767-0026.
