Picks of the Week - Love Knots and PBT Premiers


Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh believes there’s still time for romance.
 
    At 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, a special concert titled “Love Knots” will be staged at the Hillman Auditorium at the Kaufman House, 1835 Centre Avenue in Pittsburgh. Performed in an intimate setting by a select group of eight singers from the Bach Choir, "Love Knots" runs the gamut from poignant to clever, heartbreaking to humorous. Songs are performed by the entire ensemble as well as soloists, duets and other combinations of voices.

    Arranged by artistic director Thomas W. Douglas, the "Love Knots" cabaret embraces standard tunes as well as lesser-known musical theater works that both celebrate love and speak to the sometimes difficult compromises that it requires. Some are accompanied and others are sung a cappella.


    Tickets are $25 and include wine and light snacks. Phone 1-888-718-4253.
