Cantabile Chamber Players to Celebrate ‘Bach in the Subways’

The Cantabile Chamber Players will perform music by Johann Sebastian Bach at the Glendale Transportation Center’s historic Southern Pacific Railway Depot on Saturday, March 23, at 1 p.m.
The performance is part of “Bach in the Subways,” which started with one cellist, Dan Henderson, playing in the New York subway to celebrate Bach’s birthday. His idea grew into a global movement with a weeklong celebration of Bach’s birthday in a diverse range of public places worldwide. This year marks Bach’s 339th birthday.
Bach, who was the leading figure of the Baroque music period, was an accomplished organist and his compositions are revered to this day. He endures as one of the most popular and beloved classical composers of all time.
At the event, Cantabile Chamber Players will play a variety of Bach compositions, including Brandenburg Concertos No. 2 and No. 3, and other pieces. This is the fifth time the group has played publicly to celebrate Bach’s birthday.
The performance is co-sponsored by the city of Glendale. The event is free and open to the public, with free parking at the train station also available. The Southern Pacific Railway Depot is located at 400 W. Cerritos Ave.
