Coffee Cantata

As part of Shenandoah Conservatory’s annual Bach-Handel Festival, Bach’s beloved secular cantata Schweigt stille, plaudert nicht (Be still, stop chattering), also known as the Coffee Cantata, will be performed in an authentic setting at Winchester’s own Espresso Bar & Café.

The cantata was originally performed in the 1730s at Zimmerman’s Coffee House in Leipzig.  This event is free and open to the public.
