CRPDX presents Bach's Coffee Cantata, other works this Sunday

Press Release from Classical Revolution Portland:

Remember how last winter's "winter blast" ruined everything fun you had planned for two weeks straight? We certainly do, especially the cancellation of Bachxing day, which actually turned into "Vlaxing Day" due to the hardcore nature of the violists in the group. Now that it's March, we are certain this gorgeous weather won't prevent anyone from getting to our show. (well, gorgeous in comparison?)

I digress... It's time to celebrate Bach, just in time for his birthday! Classical Revolution is pleased to present Bachxing Day version 2.1 at the Someday Lounge on 3/15 at 9pm.

Members of Classical Revolution PDX will perform their own interpretations of (but not limited to) Bach concertos, cello suites, harpsichord solos, and we're especially excited about our dramatic performance of his coffee cantata. "If I can't drink my bowl of coffee three times daily, then in my torment, I will shrivel up like a piece of roast goat" - an actual line from the libretto, I'm not making this up!

Audience can join in on the fun by creating ridiculous Bach names, puns and haikus to win prizes generously donated by Classical Millennium.

Sunday, March 15th
The Someday Lounge
125 NW 5th AvePortland, OR 97209
$5 cover. 9pm start time

For more information please visit or call 503.248.1030

Happy Bachxing Day!!
