Bach & Brews                                         


J.S. Bach wrote most of his 1100+ compositions to be performed within church services, but he and some of his contemporaries also wrote comical secular music for concerts at cafes and house parties. Bach & Brews presents virtuosic instrumental music and semi-staged witty works for vocal soloists and chamber orchestra. Come experience light-hearted music, exceptional artistry, good beer, and great company. Perhaps you'll even be invited to join us in singing a few Baroque drinking songs!
