The popular "Bach Around the Block Organ Crawl" is set to start Monday at 7 pm at First Congregational Church, and continue to two other locations around Bronson Park in Kalamazoo. Brook Grantier, a member of the American Guild of Organists, describes the history of "Bach Around the Block" and discusses the unique qualities to be found in different organs.
