Bach’s Coffeehouse
Fun, informal concerts featuring some of the region’s finest musicians
Sunday, January 7 – 7:30 pm
Around 1600, a new style of instrumental music began to emerge, pushing the limits of instrumental technique and relying heavily on improvisation, often taking popular songs as inspiration. Baroque violinist Aaron Westman and baroque bassoonist Anna Marsh join organist Henry Lebedinsky for a fun, illuminating, and even breathtaking exploration of the Jazzy side of Baroque.

Sunday, February 18 – Mead Tasting Matinee at 3:00 pm
The weather may be cold, but the music is on fire. Baroque flute superstar Joshua Romatowski and acclaimed baroque violinist Tekla Cunningham are featured in this unique program of works by Johan Helmich Roman – called the Father of Swedish Music – and his contemporaries. Still chilly? A complimentary tasting of delicious artisan meads from Aesir Meadery is sure to warm the spirit!

Friday, March 23 – 7:30 pm
The combination of two violins, viola, and ‘cello has been one of Classical music’s most popular and enduring ensembles, and has inspired composers for over four centuries.

It has seven strings, seven frets, and a serious attitude. It’s the bass viola da gamba, and in the hands of San Francisco-based virtuoso William Skeen, it truly becomes the electric guitar of the 18th century. Join Skeen and harpsichordist Henry Lebedinsky for an exciting program of works by Bach, Marais, Forqueray, and more, and enjoy a free tasting of six exceptional California boutique wines chosen to complement the music.
