Bach in the Subways in an international project that promotes classical music through free concerts in public spaces. The grassroots movement began in 2010 with one cellist performing Bach's solo Cello Suites in New York City's subway stations.

Conducted by Bach Week’s music director Richard Webster, this annual birthday celebration will feature an ensemble of about 25 choristers (including members of Bella Voce) with a core chamber ensemble from the Bach Week Festival Orchestra. Not to be missed!
