Long before Starbucks appeared on every corner there was Leipzig’s Café Zimmermann, where the original jam sessions were taking place regularly by musical mastermind J.S. Bach and his student orchestra. With libations flowing, Bach would take the stage to perform his own works, as well as those by his admired friends Vivaldi and Telemann. Recreate the magic with two of Bach’s renowned Brandenburg Concertos and a fiery arrangement of Vivaldi’s “Madness.” Grab a cup of joe with friends as the Artistic Director of Cleveland’s famed Apollo’s Fire, Baroque authority Jeannette Sorrell, sets the scene with intoxicating zest and hypnotic precision.
