Sunday December 8, 2013 2:00 PM

We know Bach as a composer of serious, sacred music, but the Coffee Cantata is one of Bach's most humorous works. This miniature comic opera for three singers and six instrumentalists is about a befuddled 17th Century father trying to get his headstrong teenage daughter to kick her habit of drinking coffee. Hundreds of years later, our collective love for coffee, as well as our struggles with generational conflict, remain unabated. Some issues never grow old.

Join Longy conservatory students led by faculty members Judith Hill Bose and Ryan Turner as the Coffee Cantata Project class presents its first performance of this delightful work. Pickman Hall will be transformed into a coffee house for one day only, and of course, there will be coffee.

Seating is limited at this event and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Ticket Information: Admission is Free, tickets required. Tickets may be picked up starting 1 hour prior to the performance.
Online tickets are no longer available. Tickets may be available at the box office.
