Bach in the Subways 2019 is coming to Philadelphia! We’re looking for musicians, singers and volunteers to bring the Bach to the City of Brotherly Love at transit stations, other public spaces, and surrounding counties. We’re seeking performances for all five days – March 21-24 – let’s get a big turnout!
In addition to transit stations, Bach in the Subways Philadelphia encourages performers to seek out public and quasi-public spaces as venues, since transit station locations may be limited and may have certain restrictions. Nonetheless, various public transit agencies are supportive of Bach in the Subways performances, subject to certain modest restrictions.

SEPTA currently advises musicians who wish to perform in this year’s Bach in the Subways event simply to email Kevin Hamlet at SEPTA directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for a performance venue. Please include in your email the time/date of your performance request, the number of performers and the nature and length of your program. Amplification, such as using a digital piano or background music for singers, will likely be permitted, but please describe your particular needs in the email to Kevin Hamlet.
Once you’ve gotten everything set up, register your performance on the Bach in the Subways website and get started practicing!
