The Bach Choir Of Bethlehem Presents: Young Meister Bach

ImageProxy (1)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)!!!

“…an American musical treasure… they sing with a fervor and a level of musicianship that carries one away—from bass to soprano, the supple strength “…an American musical treasure… they sing with a fervor and a level of musicianship that carries one away—from bass to soprano, the supple strength and solidly integrated tone of this amateur choir reflects the most admirable qualities of the European-American tradition of choral song.
