Bach in the Subways, Sustainable Living - Meatless Monday

Broadcast on: 
14 March, 2017

The International Community Music School in Basel (ICMS) will be a part of the Bach in the Subways Festival this year for the first time. Bach in the Subways is a worldwide music festival that takes place around the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach. Musicians all over the world perform free public concerts in order to increase the accessibility of classical music and encourage international collaboration. The school's students and teachers will be the first representatives of Bach in the Subways in Switzerland. ICMS's director and founder, Emily Yaffe and three of her students, talked to us about the festival and gave us a sample of their upcoming performance. The performance will take place on Sunday, 19 March at at 11 a.m. in Unternehmen Mitte (Gerbergasse 30). There will be about 30 student performers (mostly violinists and pianists) as well as several faculty members. The performance is open to the public and absolutely free!
