2015 - 2016 Season

MCB Coffee House Series

Bach and Coffee

Last year's coffee concert was such a success that we have decided to make it a regular feature — join us for a casual concert with coffee and snacks.

On the program is a cantata by Nicolas Bernier that extols the health benefits of coffee (a topic that we continue to hear about today!) Countertenor Patrick Dailey joins Music City Baroque for a comic work by Pierre de la Garde in which a proud composer rehearses his new work with a somewhat unruly group of musicians. Also on the program is music from the Tafelmusik of Telemann, who was involved in the Zimmermann Cafe in Leipzig before the arrival of J.S. Bach.

This concert will be held at Frothy Monkey's roasting facility just outside downtown - come check out this great space! [Note that this is not their retail space downtown!] Free parking is available on the street and in the Frothy Monkey lot.
