The Harlem BACH Project: Music for the Soul and the Spirit
The Harlem BACH Project is an ongoing work in progress dedicated to bringing Bach's most inspirational and soul-stirring works uptown to the Harlem community. The Harlem Chamber Players’ “BACH Unit” is an offshoot group solely dedicated to the music of J.S. Bach. We plan to bring Bach’s greatest works to various venues (indoors and out) throughout the Harlem community and beyond.
