This week we're celebrating an important birthday...! Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday! And who better than Venice Music Project to honor one of the greatest composers of all time?♪♫♬

Come and celebrate this event with us! The concert will be entirely dedicated to the Baroque composer's pieces as part of the "Bach in the Subways" initiative.

SUNDAY 24 MARCH - 5PM

But what is Bach in the Subways?


In 2010, Dale Henderson started offering regular performances of the Bach Cello Suites in the subways of New York City. Convinced that the decline in classical music listening was largely because most people never get a chance to experience it live and up close, he believed Bach to be the perfect ambassador for his public performances. His initiative, which he called “Bach in the Subways,” attracted appreciative attention from fans, other musicians, and the media.

In celebration of Bach’s 326th birthday on March 21, 2011, Henderson invited other musicians to join him. Two cellists responded, offering Bach to New York City subway passengers in various stations throughout the day, and the "Bach in the Subways" movement was born.

Over the following year, "Bach in the Subways" caught momentum around the world. Henderson’s initiative sparked the work of similarly impassioned people everywhere, and on Bach’s 330th birthday in 2015, thousands of musicians in 150 cities from 40 countries offered Bach’s music freely to the public in subway stations, in train stations, on moving trains, on street corners, in cafés, malls, restaurants, zoos, and concerts open to all. More Bach was played and heard in a single day than ever before in history. In 2016, "Bach in the Subways" was extended over multiple days to again allow musicians worldwide to participate. Now every year on the occasion of Bach’s birthday, musicians around the world unite to offer this incredible gift of music. Venice Music Project has been part of this global initiative for several years.
