2:00 pm Music City Baroque presents A Musical Taste of Coffee
Frist Center Auditorium
Gallery admission required; Frist members free

The Frist Center, in partnership with the Vanderbilt Institute for Coffee Studies and Music City Baroque, presents an afternoon of classical music inspired by everyone’s favorite beverage—coffee! Enjoy delicious coffee as you listen to the music of master composers, including J. S. Bach’s famous “Coffee Cantata.” The program will also include a brief talk by Dr. Ted Fischer, the director of Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American Studies and the Institute of Coffee Studies, bringing to life the coffeehouses of early twentieth-century Vienna. Enjoy the delights of Baroque music, the taste of expertly brewed coffee, and the world of the artists featured in Postcards of the Wiener Werkstätte: Selections from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection.


7:00 pm Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with the Nashville Symphony
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Tickets available through the Nashville Symphony

One Night Only! Schermerhorn Symphony Center is the ideal setting for Antonio Vivaldi’s most celebrated work, which perfectly captures each of the four seasons, from the icy, forbidding chill of “Winter” to the bright, pastoral sounds of “Spring.” With their immediately recognizable melodies and rich textural effects, the four concertos that make up the Four Seasons will feature the Nashville Symphony at its very best.
