Bach hits the “Subway” Saturday

Posted By on Sat, Mar 21, 2015 at 9:00 AM

On March 21, the world celebrates Johann Sebastian Bach’s birthday. This year, the prolific baroque composer turns 330 and to commemorate that milestone, musicians in 39 countries will take to public transit centers to play free shows for the annual event Bach in the Subways.

Our city is getting into the "holiday" spirit too. Clearly, Spokane doesn’t have a subway system, but we do have a downtown bus plaza. Musicians of all kinds are invited to show up today at noon with instruments, music stands and friends for an impromptu Bach jam session. The event is hosted by the Holy Names Music Center. 

Who knows, something like this could happen?
