The Cocoa Cantata

Music by Robert Paterson, Libretto by David Cote

World premiere coming in 2020!A brilliant boutique chocolatier... a global chocolate brand...A “supercocoa” engineered by a confectionary chemist...The business of chocolate is not as sweet as the product!

Triphammer Arts is commissioning award winning composer Robert Paterson and

librettist/playwright David Cote to create a new mini-drama for our time - inspired by J. S. Bach’s Coffee Cantata. Scored for three singers, string quartet, flute and keyboard, the new piece explores fair-trade practices, the chemistry and symbolism of chocolate, and gender dynamics in the corporate boardroom. The piece will be accessible to anyone who loves chocolate—or great music!


We need your help!

We're partnering with The Arts at Grace in Cortland and The Society for New Music in Syracuse for this brand new piece. The Triphammer Arts' share of the Commission to pay the composer, librettist, and engraving costs is $18,000. We have a matching grant of $3000 toward our first payment. Donate now and DOUBLE the impact of your gift!
