Bach’s Birthday…it comes around every year in on March 21 and, by happy coincidence, often also falls on the first day of Spring. The occasion calls out for a celebration of this most remarkable of musical talents, and Minnesota Public Radio’s Michael Barone (host of Pipedreams) decided that Johann Sebastian Bach deserved something special. A number of years ago, he and colleagues from the local chapter of the American Guild of Organists arranged a Bach’s Birthday Bash, and the idea blossomed.
