Anthony Colemen in Kurt Weill tribute, NYC, Mar 4

Kurt Weill Birthday Tribute
Saturday Mar. 4
8:00 PM

Curated by Anthony Coleman. Featuring Elysian Fields, Mark Anthony Thompson, Sanda, Shelley Hirsch, Doveman, Christina Courtin, Gina Leishman and the Main Squeeze Orchestra.

Kurt Weill, one of America's greatest composers, embraced myriad musical forms but found his greatest success in popular music and theater. Raised in Germany, the classically trained cantor's son developed dark, emotional and subversive social and political commentaries in collaboration with playwright Bertolt Brecht. Pianist Anthony Coleman and friends pay tribute to the man behind The Threepenny Opera and present modern takes on his seminal songs, including "Ballad of the Soldier's Wife," "Alabama Song," "Mack the Knife" and "Lost in the Stars."

This event will take place at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Chambers Street.

Tickets are $20 in advance; $25 at the door.

Tickets may be purchased online on the Makor/92nd St. Y Website
