Sunday, March 26 | 2 p.m. | First Presbyterian Church
Dr. Kenyon Williams, Professor of Music at MSUM, will host the Fargo-Moorhead Symphony’s “April Foolin’ with PDQ Bach” chamber music concert this coming Sunday, March 26, at 2 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church (in downtown Fargo). The concert will feature strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and percussion performing a wide selection of works by PDQ Bach, the 21st of Johann Sebastian Bach’s 20 children, known as the “scourge of classical music.”
In reality, PDQ Bach is the alias of Fargo’s own native son, Peter Schickele (the self-proclaimed Professor of Musical Pathology at the University of Southern North Dakota at Hoople), who has lovingly and hilariously created the mythical PDQ as a “Weird Al” character whose music often skewers and pokes fun at the seriousness of classical music. Come enjoy a unique take on classical music…as a comedy routine! Tickets are available online and at the door.
