Before Bach's Birthday Bash 2017

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.
