Annie Sherman sings Christopher Cerrone & Kurt Weill (National Sawdust, Williamsburg)
Mar 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $25
Soprano-actress Annie Sherman brings you an evening of contemporary chamber music by New York’s own Christopher Cerrone and Weimar Cabaret by Kurt Weill at Williamsburg’s intimate new venue, National Sawdust. Hailed by the Los Angeles Times as “a perky sensation” and recently named finalist in the Kurt Weill Foundation’s international Lotte Lenya Competition (2015), Annie employs her cross-genre versatility and knack for storytelling to bring to life Cerrone and Weill’s characters as they grapple with identity and love in their own rapidly changing worlds. The performance will mark the National Sawdust premiere of Christopher Cerrone’s I will learn to love a person (2013) featuring poetry by Tao Lin, and Annie will be joined onstage by Douglas Sumi and Carmen Staaf on piano, Ian Rosenbaum on percussion, and Isabel Kim on clarinet.
