Bach in the Coffeehouse: Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado
Experience the music of Bach's time as it was performed at Zimmerman's Coffee House in Leipzig by Bach's sons and students. A "one to a part orchestra" led by harpsichordist Frank Nowell performs vivacious concertos by Bach, Telemann and Scarlatti, interwoven with the stories behind the music. Join the musicians at intermission for a relaxed coffeehouse atmosphere and conversation, with coffee provided by Prodigy Coffeehouse and treats provided by First Unitarian Society of Denver.
Founded in 2005 and based in Denver, the Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado is the Rocky Mountain Regions only professional period-instrument orchestra. BCOC performs a wide repertoire ranging from familiar Baroque favorites (such as Bachs Brandenburg concerti and Vivaldis Four Seasons) to rarely performed gems from the period. The orchestra is led from within the ensemble by violinist Cynthia Miller Freivogel and harpsichordist Frank Nowell, collaborating to create lively and engaging performances that draw audiences into a personal experience of the music. The Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado brings to audiences the musical riches and spirit of improvisation of the 17th and 18th centuries.
A portion of this concert's proceeds will be donated to Prodigy Coffeehouse. At Prodigy, young adults disconnected from school and/or work are invited into a year-long apprenticeship as humble learners of life, self, and craft, within a high standards enterprise. Prodigy Coffeehouse opened in July, 2016 as a social enterprise run by the talent of young adults from Northeast Denver who have previously been disconnected from school and/or work.
