Cheap, cultural and delicious, the fall Bach's Lunch series is now under way every Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint Luke (130 N. Magnolia Ave., 849-0680), through Nov. 19.
The free portion of the program begins at noon with a half-hour concert by artists ranging from Orlando Swing Band (Oct. 1) to Orlando Regional Police Bagpipe Band (Oct. 22) and the Newark (Vermont) Balkan Chorus (Nov. 12). At 12:30 p.m. sharp, it's chow time, courtesy of John Michael Catering (one of the stand-out vendors from the 1998 Orlando International Fringe Festival).
Lunch costs $5, and includes a main dish such as baked vegetable ziti, chicken teriyaki or beef stroganoff, and side items such as Caesar salad or dill potato salad. For dessert, there's chocolate-chip and oatmeal-raisin cookies.
