Bach's Coffeehouse

Bach and Coffee

Arias and Instrumental Music by J.S. Bach

Join Music City Baroque for a cup of coffee and a performance celebrating the talents of our favorite composer, J.S. Bach.

Soprano Angela Carr joins MCB for arias from Cantatas 58 and 129, as well as "Ich folge dir gleichfalls..." from the St. John Passion. In these works Bach seamlessly weaves together instrumental and vocal lines, endlessly creative in his dedication to the texts and their meaning.

Also on the program is the well-known G-major trio sonata, here in a version for flute and cello. And we explore some of Bach's solo works, with performances by flautist Jessica Dunnavant and cellist Christopher Stenstrom.

Join us for this fun, casual event with music by one of the greatest composers of all time.
