Bach in the Subways first came to Amherst, Massachusetts in 2015 in conjunction with the inaugural UMass Amherst Bach Festival and Symposium. UMass string students performed in local bookstores, copy shops, cafes and even the Subway restaurant. In 2017 BitS Amherst grew to include UMass alumni, area musicians and young Suzuki string students, and partnered with “Restaurant Week.” In 2019, Bach in the Subways Amherst coincides with “Jamherst”, a three-day live music festival, and will feature UMass students past and present, local professionals and young string students. The event preludes the third bi-annual UMass Bach Festival and Symposium taking place April 12-14.
