November 30 and December 9 at the Baryshnikov Art Center. In collaboration with Fusion Bande, musical director Kenneth Hamrick, with guest singer Paula Valstein. Performance of Anna Sokolow’s Kurt Weill, music by Kurt Weill, and a vintage video by Vicki Siechek of Anna Sokolow creating Kurt Weill. First in a three-part series featuring Sokolow masterworks as part of a live music initiative.
