Bach, Brews & Brats!

  • Sanctuary & Lawn, St. Luke's Church 2000 Stover Street Fort Collins, CO, 80525 United States (map)

It's the Feast Day of St. Luke and we are celebrating with Bach!

Start the morning off right by joining us at 9:30 am in the Library for “Bach’s Musical Cornucopia” an enlightening pre-service discussion of J.S. Bach lead by Dr. Angela Mace Christian, Colorado State University Assistant Professor of music history in the School of Music.

Then at 10:30 a.m., join us for a worship service that will be a feast for the senses.

This beautifully crafted service will include famous Bach hymns and organ works and culminates with J.S. Bach’s Cantata #187 instead of a sermon. This musical offering praises God as the primary source of bodily and spiritual nourishment. St. Luke’s is excited to incorporate instrumentalists from Colorado State University and stunning soloists from around our community with our choir and world-class organ.

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 (NPC).

NPC 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.
