Hear Professor Schickele Sing!
Hear the Moose Bellow!
(or is it the other way around?)
See the Musicians Schlep!
Hear Peter and the Armadillos (NOT Prokofiev) and their guests Joanne Pearce Martin, piano; Gary Woodward, flute; Stuart Horn, oboe; Michelle Zukovsky, clarinet; John Steinmetz, bassoon; and Steven Becknell, horn, re-create Prince Fred’s Music Chamber, performing P.D.Q.’s Schleptet and his String Quartet in F Major “The Moose” plus other works perpetrated by the minimeister of Wein-am-Rhein.
