Cup of Classical 

When: Thu., April 2, 6:30-9 p.m. 2015
Price: $25-$35
If an evening of chamber music and coffee sounds like a good way to unwind in the middle of the work week, you’ll want to check out this event hosted by one-time professional clarinetist James Freeman — or, as he’s better known in some circles, the founder of the burgeoning Blue Bottle Coffee empire. For the “Cup of Classical” event, Freeman has invited members of the Oakland East Bay Symphony to perform at Blue Bottle’s historic W.C. Morse Building cafe at 4270 Broadway in Oakland. Musical highlights will include pieces by Debussy and Ravi Shankar, as well as a flute piece inspired by traditional Japanese shakuhachi music, in honor of Blue Bottle’s newly opened Tokyo cafe. Coffee and dessert are both included in the price of admission, and Freeman himself will kick off the night with a coffee demonstration. Tickets are available via
