Baroque in the Orchard – Coffee Cantata – POSTPONED

THE CONCERT ON THURSDAY 9th JUNE has been postponed and will be re-arranged in 2023. Tickets are still available for FRIDAY 10th JUNE and SATURDAY 11th JUNE and we would love to welcome you to one of these performances. 

Eboracum Baroque are delighted to return to the idyllic surroundings of The Orchard Tea Garden in Grantchester for a series of baroque concerts.

The first concert features Bach’s Coffee Cantata alongside instrumental music by Telemann, Bach and Vivaldi as we recreate one of Bach’s coffee concerts in Cafe Zimmermann in Leipzig.

Bach’s Coffee Cantata, is a comedic piece depicting the rise of the coffee house in 18th-century Germany and addictions to coffee at this time. It follows the story of the frustrated Herr Schlendrian (Jamie Woollard) and his daughter, Lieschen (Elen Lloyd Roberts) who is addicted to coffee! He attempts to stop her coffee drinking but she remains defiant and sings of her love of caffeine. This is the closest Bach came to writing an opera and it is presented in a comedic form.

The Orchard Tea Garden will be serving refreshments before the performances and during the interval. Please bring your own seating if you wish but the famous green deck chairs will be out!

Drinks and refreshments are provided for sale by The Orchard Tea Garden only.

Full programme to be announced.
