It’s been 50 years since Professor Peter Schickele released P.D.Q. Bach on an unsuspecting musical public. And it’s been 80 years since the professor’s mother released him on a society ill-prepared for such singular genius.

And now, because everyone loves a birthday, Professor Schickele has reached back across the decades to explore the damp vaults and dusty attics of Leipzig to once again celebrate the twenty-first child (out of twenty) of the great J.S. Bach, called the “youngest and oddest.” This special, once in a half-century, musical extravaganza will feature the crème de la crème of history’s most justifiably neglected composer as well as works by the professor himself performed by VocalEssence and the University of Minnesota Wind Ensemble.

Concert Conversation at 7 pm with Peter Schickele.
