“Bach in the Subways” is a global movement initiated in 2010 with the aim of making classical music, particularly the works of Johann Sebastian Bach, accessible to the general public, especially in public spaces such as subway stations.

The movement was started by cellist Dale Henderson in New York. Henderson began playing Bach's cello suites in subway stations, providing free impromptu concerts to passersby. The concept quickly gained momentum, and musicians around the world joined the movement by organizing their own performances of Bach's works in subway stations, train stations, and other public places.

Thursday, March 21st, 2024, INECC and Ensemble AD LIBITUM are organizing mini-concerts in churches and unusual places in Luxembourg City and Kirchberg. These concerts are free.
