The Complete Organ Works of J S Bach

From noon until noon on the 18th-19th of June, a team of female organists will be performing the complete organ works of J S Bach at Pembroke College, Cambridge. This event is aiming to increase the visibility of female organists whilst enjoying some excellent music-making.

The event will be free to attend, and there will be a collection raising money to help bring Zambian musicians over to England for workshops. 

The whole 24 hours will be live-streamed on Facebook.

If you can't make it to Cambridge then don't worry - you can still get involved! We're encouraging musicians all over the world to post videos of themselves playing Bach on any instrument, with the hashtag #PlayLikeAGirl
