Johann Sebastian Bach - "Coffee Cantata" BWV 211 (English Subtitles)

Happy National Coffee Day!
JS Bach wrote a cantata about coffee (BWV 211) some time between 1732-1735. This is one of his few secular works, and contains the following line: If I couldn't, three times a day, be allowed to drink my little cup of coffee, in my anguish I will turn into a shriveled-up roast goat.

Please enjoy Bach's Coffee Cantata.

Does anyone know how to get to the event livestream for today?
Live Arts Maryland had our first LIVE and IN-PERSON concert in 20 months on Saturday. Ahead of the concert Maestro J. Ernest Green interviewed some Annapolis Chorale members to discuss how we kept singing during the pandemic and how it feels to be back together. Check out the interview here:
“I ask for one day where I don't have to hear about pain, or life that's lost, I ask for one day where whispers of hope are alive inside my heart.” These words, written 7th grader Claire Latimer, moved composer Jim Papoulis to create this inspiring score. The commission was for the Concert Choir of the Fairfax Choral Society for their Poetry of Music collaboration with the Fairfax County Public Schools (Virginia, USA). • score info - https://goo.gl/ce8Vsq
Hello! My name is Tess Ottinger. I am currently looking to fill my private voice and piano studio that I opened 5 years ago. I'm offering online lessons ranging from 30-60 minutes for both adults and younger students of all ages. I have two bachelors degrees, one in Music Education and the other in Vocal Performance, and I recently graduated from the Johns Hopkins Peabody Conservatory, earning a masters degree in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy. If you or someone you know is interested in starting or continuing voice or piano lessons (virtually), please let me know! My website is listed below, and you can reach me via the contact page on the site. www.vissidartestudios.com I have many references who would be delighted to speak with you. Thank you so much!
