MORRISTOWN, NJ – Musicians of all ages had the opportunity to perform selections by J.S. Bach on Sunday at the inaugural “Bach in the Subways” event at the Morris Museum.

With the vision of Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Executive Director, and assistance of museum staff, local volunteers, and Ms. Mindy Scheierman, music consultant and township resident, organizer Sheetal Bangalore was able to bring in 35 groups comprised of a total of 90 individuals for Sunday’s event. 

Speaking with Studio 462 and TAPinto after the performances, Bangalore, a junior at Morristown High School, regarded the event as “a great success. In the future, I hope to get more performers and have more representation from various public and private schools.” Bangalore also expressed interest in making this an annual event, and hopes to “increase the number of groups for the next performance.” Scheierman adds, “it was a wonderful day of bringing musicians together to celebrate, perform, and create in a beautiful setting.”
