On March 4 Fête Concerts celebrates the Birthday of Kurt Weill!
Weill began his career in the early 1920’s, after a musical childhood and several years of study in Berlin. After establishing his young career in Germany, his early musical theatre works with Bertolt Brecht made him famous all over Europe. He fled the new Nazi leadership in March 1933 and continued his indefatigable efforts, first in Paris (1933-35), then in the U.S. until his death. Weill collaborated with highly-regarded playwrights and lyricists throughout his career. Their work adapted to audience’s tastes around the world with a strong message of social justice.
Selections from Threepenny Opera, Seven Deadly Sins, Knickerbocker Holiday, Lost in the Stars and more, performed by Chelsea Hollow, Carolyn Bacon, Jordan Amann, Sergey Khalikulov, and Paul Dab. And a specially arranged “Happy Birthday” by local composer Joseph Colombo.
