Young Meister Bach, the delightful one-act comic opera by Chuck Holdeman and Bill Bly, which premiered at our Family Concert, is perfectly paired with J.S. Bach’s popular Coffee Cantata. Young Meister Bach is a lively, imaginative look at the misadventures of a young J S Bach as he embarks on his career at age 18. The Coffee Cantata, although classified as a cantata, it is essentially a miniature comic opera. In a satirical commentary, the cantata amusingly tells of an addiction to coffee, a pressing social problem in eighteenth century Leipzig, where this work was premiered. Both pieces are sung in English.
The Concert begins at 10:30 am in Baker Hall at the Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University, Bethlehem. Take your Ticket Confirmation to the Zoellner Arts Center Box Office, purchase your RUSH TICKET Today for Young Meister Bach with Coffee Cantata on May 10th for ONLY $9.99 (Normally $28)!!!
