An Evening with Peter Schickele

In 2017, The Fargo-Moorhead Symphony presented the North Dakota premiere of "Concerto for Simply Grand Piano," a new commission by composer Peter Schickele in his humorous mode. Schickele won two Grammy awards for his comedic classical music recordings by "P.D.Q. Bach." He came to Fargo for the occasion, and read to an appreciative audience (that included many old friends) a memoir of his years in the town.
