    It’s been 50 years since Professor Peter Schickele released P.D.Q. Bach on an unsuspecting musical public. And it’s been 80 years since the professor’s mother released him on a society ill-prepared for such singular genius. And now, because everyone loves a birthday, Professor Schickele has reached back across the decades to explore the damp vaults and dusty attics of Leipzig to once again celebrate the twenty-first child (out of twenty) of the great J.S. Bach, called the “youngest and oddest.” This special, once in a half-century, musical extravaganza will feature the crème of history’s most justifiably neglected composer as well as works by the professor himself performed by VocalEssence and the University of Minnesota Wind Ensemble.

    Did you know that a radio could transport you to a different universe? With VocalEssence, anything is possible. Jake Heggie, one of the world’s most prominent composers of dramatic vocal music and composer of the opera “Dead Man Walking,” along with librettist Gene Scheer, have created a new choral opera titled “The Radio Hour” which crosses Alice in Wonderland with the golden age of radio in a magical program about the power of singing to shape and give meaning to our lives. The precursor to the opera will include a swinging salute to radio legend Fred Waring, “The Man Who Taught America How to Sing,” and other radio choral favorites, all on the home stage of “A Prairie Home Companion.”
