The Joys of Coffee
18th-century coffee houses were the hub of news and inevitably a place where new ideas were formed. BaroQue Across the River offers a coffee break with a well-known favorite aria from J. S. Bach's "Coffee Cantata" (BWV 211) as well as the delightful lesser-known cantata "Le CafÈ" by Nicolas Bernier.
BaroQue Across The River, now in its eighth season, presents concerts on original instruments in historical settings. Engaging New Yorkís finest early music performers, B.A.R. has brought concerts to Brooklynís historic Borough Hall, the Brooklyn Historical Society, Wyckoff House Museum, Akwaaba Mansion, Lefferts House, Zion German Lutheran Church, The Society for Ethical Culture, the Stevenson Academy of Fine Arts and the Bruce Museum in Greenwhich, CT. In 2007-08, BAR Concerts included a summer festival in Quebec, Canada and a concert for ìMusic on the Heightsî series at the historic Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims in Brooklyn, NY.
