This season the Bach Choir will venture into music inspired by the face cards found in a deck of cards. The king is reminiscent of royalty and coronations, a perfect likeness for the Coronation Anthems and the Coronation Mass. The Jack is a little trickier; also considered a knave (a dishonest or unscrupulous man), we turn to the outrageous musical parodies of PDQ Bach and other “Jacks.” And what could be more perfect than the music of Freddie Mercury and Queen rounding off the year of the “Full House”!
JACKS: Knaves and Fools – PDQ Bach and other Jacks
East Liberty Presbyterian Church in the Social Hall
116 S. Highland Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206
The second part of the season will begin with “Jacks,” the knave with his sword, tights and funny hat, not royalty but in service to the monarch. The comedy of Peter Schickele (PDQ Bach) will tickle us all with its lively music accompanied by the incomparable Jim Burns in collaboration with Warren Davidson and and an Academy Chamber Orchestra ensemble. Also featured are other “Jacks” like Jack Parton and Jacques Offenbach.
QUEENS: The Music of Queen

3579 Masonic Way, Pittsburgh, PA 15237
The season will end with the music of the great and celebrated British rock band “Queen,” honoring the legacy of Freddie Mercury. The singers of the Bach Choir, a live band with a guest soloist will BRING IT! And a special surprise awaits concert-goers…
