Fifty Photos for Fifty  Years

2015 marks the Fiftieth Anniversary of Prof. Schickele’s tireless efforts to bring live performances of the music of P.D.Q. Bach to concert audiences across the country and sometimes around the world.  From an unsuspecting New York City Town Hall on April 24, 1965 (recorded on the first Vanguard record album An Evening With P.D.Q. Bach), to bus tours with his own orchestra, to traveling chamber music/opera shows and appearing as soloist with major orchestras, to this year’s suitably appropriate Fiftieth Anniversary concerts, top notch performances of the latest P.D.Q. Bach discoveries could be experienced in all corners of this otherwise spherical globe. 

To mark the occasion, the curator of this website has pulled together an unprecedented collection of fifty on-the-stage and behind-the-scenes photographs from many different locations and time periods of this musical mischiefy tour, many of them never before seen.  They provide a unique glimpse into an amazing Fifty-Year History.  Particular thanks to William Walters, Lisl Steiner, and other assorted photographers for contributing so many rare photos to this collection of Fifty Photos for Fifty Years.
