Youth Orchestras of San Antonio presents a hilarious new piano concerto by fictitious composer P.D.Q. Bach (the comic alter-ego of musical satirist Peter Schickele), who is the centerpiece of this lighthearted concert featuring renowned pianist Jeffrey Biegel. Kodály’s Háry János Suite is a tuneful collection of tall tales, based on the exaggerated stories of an aging Hungarian soldier. And YOSA celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein with one of his most carefree, cheerful works.
