Bach In The Subways

DSC_9448A

(6 photos)  Bach in the Subways celebrates the life of J. S. Bach and seeks to bring his music to folks who might otherwise never have the joy of meeting him.  His 331st birthday is March 21, so on Sunday we headed to Los Angeles’ main train station to share the fun.

The crowd anticipates the arrival of the organist.

On the program is “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring”.  Me and this little guy both love that one.

Woohoo, there he goes!

Also on the program was “Tocatta and Fugue in D minor”.  That’s what was being played when this photo was taken.

    1. You’re so perceptive, David. As a Psych major in college, I acquired great skill in observing & analyzing human behavior. It’s the least I can do to share what I’ve learned. I hope one day to be an equally accomplished photographer.

    1. Thank you for sharing that link. And I would like to share a link with you. It is the classical music radio station here in Los Angeles. You can listen on the internet, of course.

    1. I don’t think all the folks listening were there just because it was free – I’m encouraged by how many Bach fans are out there! Cheers to Papa Bach & his boys.
