Bach Festival Week in Kalamazoo continues tonight with an organ crawl around Bronson Park, tomorrow with a Bach sing-along prepped by three choral conductors, and concludes with a "Bach's Lunch Concert" Wednesday at noon. 

  Bach Festival Week begins this Sunday with area churches participating in "The City Sings Bach" during morning services, followed by the "Young Vocalists Concert," an afternoon showcase of top performers in last month's Kalamazoo Bach Festival Young Vocalists Competition.
