What would be the difference between these two event handlers, one with async, the other without:
private async void ToolStripPlay_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var task = Task.Run(() => this.Play()).ConfigureAwait(continueOnCapturedContext: false);
    await task;
}
private void ToolStripPlay_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    var task = Task.Run(() => this.Play()).ConfigureAwait(continueOnCapturedContext: false);
}
Is there any benefit to using async in this case?
