MONSTER: Frankenstein Re-Imagined
Saturday, April 23 at 7:30-PM – 9:00PM
Sunday, April 24 at 4:00PM – 5:30PM

The Bach Choir of Pittsburgh presents Monster: Frankenstein Re-Imagined, an original pop-funk-R&B score composed and compiled by Jaron Crawford and artistic director Thomas W. Douglas. The original 1931 “Frankenstein” film, directed by James Whale and starring Boris Karloff, will be shown silently as the Bach Choir performs the composed music as a soundtrack. The music will reimagine Mary Shelley’s classic tale with a latticework of contemporary idioms, accompanied by a live band of keyboard, bass guitar and drums, guitar and saxophone, contracted by Paul Thompson.
