Kurt Weill’s American Songs: When Kurt Weill came to America in the 1930s, he created a new body of work that soon became certifiably American.

This is the first of three shows Michael Lasser has dedicated to the composer. Funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., the Kurt Weill, American series, a Fascinatin' Rhythm presentation, airs Saturdays, March 9, 16 and 23 at 11 a.m. on Classical 91.5 and on public radio stations across the country sets the stage for the 15th Annual Lotte Lenya Competition, which will take place in April at the Eastman School of Music. 

Michael Lasser will also celebrate the music of Kurt Weill with a special performance of Weill's music at The Harley School's Wilson Arts Center (Rochester, New York) on Sunday, April 7 at 2 p.m. For complete details, click here.
