*¤*.¸¸.·´¨`»The Bach Birthday Bash!!!.·°·.»♫

 The immortal god of harmony.
Beethoven said of J. S. Bach
It's the shining musical event of every year: The American Guild of Organists in Tampa hosts a celebration of Bach's work around his birthday (March 21, 1685).  This year it is March 23rd.  It is **free** for all, but donations are most welcome, as this is a fundraiser for Organ student scholarships.Check out if your area is having a Bach Celebration too!   Orchestras, choirs, churches, organ guilds - lots of musical groups have a reason to celebrate. Johann Sebastian Bach is unequaled in fame and reverenced by all great musicians.

  “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”

“It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.”

Check out the Piano Society's bio of Bach:

And if you can't make it to the Bach Bash in Tampa,  check out :  Lakeland's   Imperial Symphony Orchestra Event. Same night. March 22 !!  **Children and students are FREE and do not need a ticket.**
