Meadows Wind Ensemble: Come to the Cabaret

  • Caruth Auditorium, Meadows School of the Arts (map)

Come to the Cabaret features music perhaps better suited to a smoky bar than a concert hall and, in the case of one work (Kurt Weill’s Little Threepenny Music), an even seedier venue might be appropriate! The program will open with Little Threepenny Music, a setting of songs from Weill’s signature work, The Threepenny Opera, including the familiar “Mack the Knife.” Meadows faculty pianist Catharine Lysinger will join the MWE for a performance of the original jazz band setting of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, and the program will conclude with David Sanborn’s Concerto for Saxophone, featuring Meadows faculty member and longtime principal saxophonist with the Dallas Wind Symphony, Donald Fabian, as soloist.
