3/20/16: In celebration of Johann Sebastian Bach's 331st birthday, members of the Me2/Orchestra performed some of his pieces at the Burlington International Airport in South Burlington on Sunday afternoon. Around the world, thousands of musicians played Bach's music in public spaces for the 6th Annual Bach in the Subways.

The Me2/Orchestra often perform outside concert halls, in prisons, schools and gyms. The group is a classical music organization created for individuals with mental illnesses and the people who support them. Their goal is to openly discuss mental health issues and remove the stigma often attached to mental illness.

Eva spent the day meeting members of Me2/ and listening to the melodic music of Bach amidst the hustle and bustle of the airport.
