“Ah! How sweet coffee tastes! Lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!”- JS Bach
We were thrilled to take part this morning in a coffee tasting and music performance. Savannah Friends of Music has been supporting classical music in Savannah since 2003 and in that time has raised over $460,000. One of the ways they do that is through their Parties a-la-Carte program. This morning’s theme was Bach’s Coffee Cantata.
We were treated to a fantastic performance of the cantata sung by Kelly Balmaceda, Marcos Santos, and Kyle Hancock.
In addition to the performance, we were proud to introduce a new coffee: Maestro’s Blend. Named in honor of the Philharmonic’s own director Peter Shannon (an avid drinker of Cup to Cup Coffee) we tasted each coffee found in the blend, and then the completed blend itself.
The Maestro’s Blend is available today online! You can purchase and have it shipped to you, or arrange for downtown pickup at ThincSavannah, which was the gracious host location for us this morning. Half the proceeds will go directly to the Philharmonic. Get some today!
