Fun Fact Week – Wednesday

FUN FACT: Did you know that at the age of twenty, J.S. Bach was granted leave from his position at Arnstadt to meet the famous organist Dietrich Buxtehude in Lubeck. He walked over 200 miles each way!!
There meeting went so well that Bach was offered Buxtehude’s position…but only on the condition that he marry his aging daughter. So, Bach declined!!
