While sipping on their favorite brews at Mother’s Brewing Company (215 S Grant Ave) audience members 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 will be paired with one of Mother’s own brews. The program was named one of the “Top Ten classical music events of 2014” by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Steuart is a Springfield-native, and is looking forward to presenting the program in his hometown.
