Classical music lovers, mark your calendars: Johann Sebastian Bach’s 335th birthday on March 21 will be honored with a whole week of spontaneous, free performances of his music throughout the city. From March 19th to 25th, Bach in the Subways will bring hundreds of performers to the city to share the German composer’s work. The name suggests you’ll have to ride underground for a chance to see them play, but you can expect performers to spring up in public spaces above ground as well.

Midsummer adventure doesn’t require leaving the city, and we’ve got plenty of fantastic local events picked out for you to enjoy over the next few days. This weekend is your chance to star in one of Time Square Arts’ amazing Midnight Moment films (this one involves crawling!); to see three new plays in development by the National Theater Company on Governor’s Island; and to tour Soho’s only gay and lesbian museum for a powerhouse two person photo show.
