Thomas Wesley Douglas is getting to the core of his work in this weekend’s concerts by the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh.

The concerts March 5 and 6 at the Elsie H. Hillman Auditorium at the Hill House, Uptown, will present music performed by the 16 core singers and two alternates of the choir.

Music is at the core, too. The program will consist of works by J.S. Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Johannes Brahms, whom Douglas says are part of the center of Western culture.

“The works are all ideal for this smaller group,” he says of the program for the concert, “Core Values: Work Ethic.”

The concert will feature Bach’s “Jesu, meine Freude,” Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in B” and Brahms’ “Six Love Songs.”
