NEW YORK (AP) - A world-class Italian orchestra served up the sounds of the season - amid the pizza, pasta and pepperoni of a Manhattan food emporium.

The orchestra and chorus of the Teatro Regio (teh-AH’-troh REH’-joe) from Turin played Sunday night at Eataly. That’s the 50,000-square-foot New York outpost of the global food market chain.

Eataly locked its doors for a food and music feast benefiting the Geneva-based Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria. Guests paid $85 each for the spectacle.

Earlier Sunday, the Italian ensemble with vocal soloists performed at Carnegie Hall under music director Gianandrea Noseda (JAHN’-ahn-dreh-ah noh-zeh-dah). Their North American tour also took them to Chicago and Toronto.

The evening concluded with a live, post-midnight broadcast to Italy.
