Tafelmusik in Leipzig 2014: Zimmerman Coffee House

In June 2014, Tafelmusik embarked from Toroto on a tour to Leipzig to perform at three concerts during Bachfest at two different venues which included St. Thomas Church where the composer Johann Sebastian Bach was choir director from 1723 until his death in 1750.

Alison Mackay, Double Bassist of Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra as well as creator of the multi-media concert experiences 'Galileo Project' as well as 'House of Dreams', gives us a brief presentation about the Zimmerman Coffee House where J.S. Bach once presented two concerts a week of classical non-secular music.

Alison Mackay's acclaimed J.S. Bach: The Circle of Creation returns on March 14–18, 2018, following its premiere performances in 2014/15.
