Happy Birthday Mr. Bach

"A group of music students will celebrate Bach's birthday on March 21 by walking 20 miles from New Brunswick, New Jersey, to a New York Philharmonic concert in Manhattan.

The three-day stroll was inspired by a journey that Bach made in his youth. While serving as a church musician in the town of Arnstadt, the composer heard that Danish organist and composer Dietrich Buxtehude would be performing in Lübeck, 250 miles away. With no way to travel, he decided to walk, and completed the trip in ten days."


So what are you doing for Bach's Birthday?
