 Why is Bach anticipating a great cup of coffee?


Why is Bach anticipating a great cup of coffee?



It could be he's awaiting the start of the exciting 2021-2022 Season!

We are still working out all the details of programming.

Our first concert will be November 14, 2021—at 2:00 PM (note our new starting time!)

at Dolan Hall, Saint Elizabeth University, 2 Convent Road, Morristown, New Jersey.

The major work on that concert will be

our own staged interpretation

of Johann Sebastian Bach's


Coffee Cantata

It's also possible Bach is reminiscing about his fun times playing at Zimmermann's Coffee House in Leipzig in the 1720s.


It is even possible that Bach led the first performance of The Coffee Cantata at that major Leipzig coffee house!

Tickets go on sale October 1.

Please check the website for continuous updates.

 We will follow all health mandates at our concerts.

 Staff, artists, and patrons must be vaccinated and wear masks inside the theater.

 We will limit our audience to a maximum of 200 to allow for socially distanced seating.
