Violin Concerto in A minor, BWV 1041

Join us for an evening of masterworks including Bach’s charming “Coffee Cantata,” a miniature comic opera, which demonstrates the composer’s tongue-in-cheek wit. Also, the delightful “Wedding Cantata,” which was likely composed for Bach’s own wedding in 1721. We are also thrilled to feature the winners and runner-up of our Inaugural Violin Concerto Competition performing their violin concerti and joining the ensemble on the Cantatas. 

Join us for a complimentary patron reception after each concert.
