2023 SUMMER SING PROGRAM
Come and sing with us!
WHO: Open to the community! No auditions necessary!
WHAT: A low commitment – high enjoyment choral experience. Summer Sing is a wild experience – a cross between an open rehearsal of a choral masterwork and a reading session with singers of all levels of training and experience. We will read by sight and make what music we can within three Tuesday evening rehearsals. It is always joyful but exhausting, magical and a little bit messy. Mostly, it’s just good choral fun!
WHERE: Rodef Shalom Congregation, 4905 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
WHEN: It will be held on Tuesday, June 6, 13 and 20, 2023 from 7:00-10:00PM.
SESSIONS: You do not have to attend all three sessions.
Week 1 – Mozart: Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, K. 339 (1780)
Week 2 – Brahms: Liebeslieder Walzer, Op. 52 (1868)
Week 3 – Bernstein: Chichester Psalms (1965)

2022-23 Season Description
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”!
KINGS: The Coronation Anthems of Handel & the Coronation Mass of Mozart
Saturday, November 12 at 7:30PM – Ticket Sales Closed

In “Kings” the choir will perform the stately music of Handel and Mozart as a nod to royalty. The Coronation Anthems and the Coronation Mass in collaboration with Warren Davidson and the Academy Chamber Orchestra will set a royal tone in November to begin the Bach Choir’s 2022-23 season.
JACKS: Knaves and Fools – PDQ Bach and other Jacks
Saturday, February 11 at 7:30PM – Ticket Sales Closed
Sunday, February 12 at 4:00PM – Ticket Sales Closed
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.
