Event Details

Internationally-recognized cellist Steuart Pincombe will bring together two of the finer things in life: Bach and Beer. While sipping on your favorite brews, you will discover the connections between the art of brewing and the art of playing the music of Bach. Just as many brewers follow a recipe that was used hundreds of years ago, Steuart’s approach to playing Bach also looks back on old “recipes” and methods of playing. The program of Bach’s Cello Suites will be interlaced with short explanations of Steuart’s historical, interpretive approach along with comments on the historical brewing method of each beer. Each Suite (three total) will be paired with one of our own TUPPS Brewery brews. The program was named one of the “Top Ten classical music events of 2014” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The concert is part of a project called Music in Familiar Spaces, a yearlong tour of the US bringing the highest level of classical music performance to homes, churches, cafés, bars, or any place where community already exists. One of the aims of the Music in Familiar Spaces tour is to make classical music accessible to a wide and varied audience. This will be accomplished not only by performing in familiar, comfortable and untraditional spaces, but by designing programs that invite the audience to experience the music in a new and engaging way.

The audience will also be asked to name-their-own-ticket-price, paying what they can afford and what they deem the concert is worth. Beer is sold separately. Purchase a $15 wristband and receive the three TUPPS beers that pair with each of Steuart’s Suites. You may purchase wristbands at the door.

Butcher and Barley will be serving Houseground Weisswurst served with Cheese and Potato Pierogi.
