Welcome to the Weill Project blog. You may want to join our Facebook group: that will alert you when we have new posts here, and also let you know about other things happening in our orbit.
The Weill Project is dedicated to the work of the German (later American) composer Kurt Weill. Our primary focus is to create and perform original arrangements of Weill's songs, about 15 of which will be publicly premiered in February 2022. The Project also includes critical and historical study of Weill's work and of "Weill-adjacent" work. We expect our tours to include both concerts and lecture/demonstrations. Plans also include visual art related to or inspired by Weill and his songs.
We plan to post new content to the Weill Project Blog at least twice a month, maybe more. (It's ended up being pretty much weekly. - JM 6 Oct 2021.) This blog will focus on:
That last is pretty elastic: we each have a rather broad set of interests:
And then there's politics. So while Kurt Weill and the Weill Project will be the main focus of this blog, don't be too surprised if it occasionally gets a bit far afield.
Next blog post: Kurt Weill and John Cale
