Show Notes

To get ready for Bach’s March birthday, we bring you the fascinating story of a man on a mission to bring Bach to the people. Bach’s music changed cellist Dale Henderson‘s life. Though the concert hall was a fab venue for sharing this music, Dale wasn’t satisfied to stop there. Bach’s music, he felt, was for everyone  – not just classical music fans. So he schlepped his cello down into a New York City subway, and started playing “pop-up” concerts (for free). And thus, Bach in the Subways was born. The ongoing project now spans more than 40 countries where hundreds of musicians participate in their own cities’ public spaces.

If you’re a musician and you want to participate, you’re in luck! The next Bach in the Subways event happens March 21-24, 2019. Find everything you need to know to be a part of the worldwide phenom right here.

Check out a video of Dale playing Bach at Classical KING FM (home of the Classical Classroom)!
