Peter Schickele: “Why Music is Funny” Lecture

January 16, 2015 @ 2:00 PM


Peter Schickele, or P.D.Q. Bach, will be presenting a humorous lecture entitled “Why Music is Funny” in the Jerilyn S. McIntyre Music Building Concert Hall on the CWU campus on Friday, Jan. 16 at 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.


Peter Schickele is internationally known as a composer, musicologist, multifaceted performer, radio host, and recording artist.  Since 1965 the tireless Professor has kept audiences in stitches with his presentation of P.D.Q. Bach’s uniquely typical music.  In addition to his annual concerts in New York City, he has appeared with over fifty orchestras, ranging from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic to the New York Pick-Up Ensemble; and his self-contained show.
