BACHday Bash publicizes 'Time Zones' concert

Sunday, March 17, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

It isn't too often that the name “Bach” conjures up images of edgy and unexpected entertainment.

“We fight that all the time,” said Matt Dooley. “Now that (artistic director) Thomas Douglas is with us, people are thinking, ‘What are they going to do next?' ”

A group of 125 were amongst those seeking an answer to that very question March 16 as they arrived at the Mansions on Fifth to celebrate the annual BACHday Bash.

Co-chairs Beverly Filtz and her son, Brian Filtz led the likes of board prez Paul Block, associate conductor Jon Erik Schreiber, Penny Morel, Fred Rapone, Karen Bush, Paul Homick, Carol Manteris and Jane Borthwick Story in toasting the 78th season of the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh.

Urging curiosity seekers to “take a chance,” an open invitation was extended to attend the upcoming concert, “Time Zones,” that promises to combine “the musical genius of (Johann Sebastian) Bach with the brilliant silent narratives of (Charlie) Chaplin's films.”

“I thought I'd put two geniuses together who were separated by time,” Douglas said.

The concert will be presented April 6 and 7 at the Allegheny Academy on the North Side.
