In November 2014, WQXR held a month-long festival called Bachstock: 30 Days of Peace and Music, which featured “My Daily Bach,” hosted by Jeff Spurgeon; an all-Bach stream; “BACH,” from the WQXR app, with over 50 tracks of exclusive Bach performances available for download; and live performances, including an 18-hour “Bach Organ Marathon” at Saint Peter’s Church in New York City. There were more than 18,000 streams of the marathon the day it was held and the day after on WQXR.org. The festival included two events in The Greene Space: a live taping of On Being with Krista Tippet exploring the cosmology of Bach through performance, and “Baby Got Bach,” a hands-on interactive Bach concert for kids.
