Allentown and Bach
Enjoy a walk and Bach concert in Allentown.
We will meet at Trout Hall to begin our downtown Allentown walk. The route is flexible, but will include the Arts Walk, new Center City developments, Zion Church (where the Liberty Bell was hidden during the Revolution), the Post Office, and, if time permits, West Park and Millionaire's Row. We will conclude the walk at 11:30 AM at St. John's Lutheran Church, a church built in the form of a medieval cathedral, where the Bach Choir of Bethlehem is offering a Bach at Noon concert (free, donations appreciated). The program includes the Concerto in A Major, BWV 1055, with 12 year old Kristina Moditch, pianist, and Cantata 80, “Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott” in observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Bring water. This walk is on city sidewalks.
