Tafelmusik | Haus Musik: Café Counterculture

October 10, 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$20

1730 Leipzig to 1960 Yorkville

It’s 1730s Leipzig, Germany. J.S. Bach and his colleagues gather at Zimmerman’s coffee house for weekly concerts featuring the new music of the day. Fast forward to Toronto in the 1960s. Yorkville (now known as the ‘Mink Mile’) is a hub of subversion and anti-establishment activism. Undiscovered artists are making their breaks and international acts have come to sling it in underground dives and coffee houses. Legends of this counterculture scene pepper music collections across the world.

For this first Haus Musik concert of the 2019/20 season, Tafelmusik’s baroque flair and artistry meet folk favorites from Yorkville’s colourful past. Sonatas by Bach and friends will be interspersed with new arrangements of iconic songs by Buffy Saint-Marie, Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfunkel, and others.

Curated with guest artists Andrew Downing (double bass, arranger) and Alex Samaras (vocals), CAFÉ COUNTERCULTURE is a trip down memory lane well worth taking.

Curated by:
Marco Cera, Andrew Downing, and Alex Samaras

Featuring:
Andrew Downing, double bass, arranger
Alex Samaras, vocals

Members of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir:
Marco Cera, oboe
