Box lunch VS Bach's Lunch
A box lunch is always a treat. It’s like opening a present right in the middle of the work day. Just watch the next time you’re in a meeting where box lunches are provided. Everyone is smiling ear to ear as they take out each little "gift" placed in the box just for them. There’s the wrapped pickle, the mustard and mayo packets, maybe a little pasta salad and the breath mint. But everyone knows the big moment is when you discover what kind of cookie is at the bottom of your box. And just like when you were in school, if there’s anything in your box that you don’t like you’ll want to trade.
Admit it, right now you want a box lunch in a bad way but would you trade that treat for a Bach’s Lunch? After I tell you what I have to offer I think you will.
WCVE Public Radio’s wonderful Ensemble-in-Residence, the Atlantic Chamber Ensemble (ACE) will be providing a Bach’s Lunch once a month during your lunch hour. ACE will perform live studio concerts sometimes providing lighter fare and at other times playing meatier pieces. With 11 members in the group the combinations are as endless at Sunday Brunch at The Jefferson. The first program on Monday, November 14th, 12:08pm will feature a woodwind divertimento by Sir Malcolm Arnold performed by three members of ACE, Ralph Skiano (clarinet), Shawn Welk (oboe) and Ann Choomack (flute).
I'm thinking ACE is made up of a bunch of foodies as they are calling their next concert 'House Specials' where attendees will choose from a menu of pieces to be performed. Here is a link with details.
("House Specials" will not be broadcast.)
The next two Bach's Lunch programs are scheduled for December 12th and January 16th.
