Bach, Brews & Brats

    • On Sunday, October 20, St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Fort Collins is celebrating the Feast Day of St. Luke with Bach, Brews & Brats

      Described as a service that will be a feast for the senses, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church presents Bach, Brews & Brats on Sunday, October 20 at 10:30 a.m. This beautifully crafted service will include famous Bach hymns and organ works performed by CSU’s Professor of Organ Joel Bacon and culminates with J.S. Bach’s Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden BWV 230.

      It is based off Psalm 117 and its opening line is translated "Praise the Lord, all ye nations," which is fitting because choirs from two different countries will be joining together to perform this work. The world-famous Ensemble Heinavanker will be flying all the way from the country of Estonia to share their talents with us. This exquisite 7-person vocal ensemble will join the St. Luke's Parish Choir in performing the Bach cantata during the sermon time of the service.

      Following such Divine spiritual sustenance, and in line with Bach’s German roots, we’ll feed the body at a rousing barbecue complete with bratwurst, assorted microbrews and root beer and polka music performed by CSU’s Neue Polka Colorado.

      Neue Polka Colorado is a polka band for the 21st century. Inspired by the singing, playing, camaraderie, and antics of the town bands of Central Europe, the band is exclusively brass instruments, and is populated almost entirely by music majors at Colorado State University. They describe themselves as one-part Oktoberfest, one-part 1990s mix tape and 100% fun.
