The Pacific Jazz Orchestra with Rufus Wainwright
March 2, 2024 • 8:00 pm PST
Rufus Wainwright’s fascination with Kurt Weill’s music goes back for decades — in his early twenties he wore out the vinyl grooves of Teresa Stratas’ famous Weill album. Never has he dedicated an entire evening to singing the German musician’s songs. With the Pacific Jazz Orchestra, under the baton of Chris Walden, he is now expanding the orchestral palette for his approach to Kurt Weill. Wainwright will interject some of his own compositions, old and utterly new ones that have been influenced by the German composer.
Wainwright does Weill at the Theatre at Ace Hotel on Saturday, March 2.
