Pictures at an Exhibition

and Tosca and Sunday in the Park with George. This is the program for the first concert of Bach Choir of Pittsburgh's 2009-2010 season this weekend at the New Hazlett Theater in Pittsburgh. Our conductor Thomas W Douglas has arranged Mussorgsky's masterpiece for chorus. It has been a most interesting journey learning the words and notes to music many of us have known for years as a piano or orchestral piece. This concert honors visual art and will have painters working live during the concert. Do come and experience Pittsburgh's most innovative choral experience. Tickets are available from ProArts Tickets. Then hang around and say Hi to me after the concert.

Would that I had a magic carpet and could fly to Pittsburgh. I love "Pictures." Love it, love it, love it.

O to be "home again" in Pittsburgh to join you for such a scrumptuous evening. It sounds truly magnificent.

Pittsburgh has always had such a rich arts and music scene. The Sunday afternoon symphony series at Syria Mosque was a secret treasure and hidaway for this teenager..and it launched a lifetime of appreciating your art.

Thank you.
