Jazz on the Porch: Lost in the Stars – An All-Kurt Weill Cabaret

July 25 @ 7:00 PM 9:00 PM

Our outdoor Jazz on the Porch summer series continues on Thursday July 25th at 7pm!

Lost in the Stars – An All-Kurt Weill Cabaret

Jazz on the Porch, July 25th 7pm-9pm


The incomparable Kurt Weill is the composer of beloved classics “Lost in the Stars” and “Mack the Knife.” However, his vast catalogue of work spans from gritty German Weimer cabaret songs to opera to glamorous Broadway showstoppers. Sung by Danie Friesen in English, French and German, this show will feature classic Weill tunes as well as rarely heard Weill works with new arrangements by Noah Franche-Nolan. Accompanied by Conrad Good on double bass, and Noah Franche-Nolan on Piano.

Danie Friesen Bio:

With a background in theatre and film, Canadian actor/soprano Danie Friesen’s range of professional experience reflects an artist who transcends barriers and is active in creating and performing new works. In 2012, she co-founded Art & Lies Productions, an independent theatre company focused on producing stylized, physical and absurdist theatre. Danie is the founder of Opera Revue, an indie opera company based in Toronto that specializes in bringing opera, art song and musical theatre into casual settings, such as bars and nightclubs, making opera accessible to new audiences.

Recent roles include: Linfea (La Calisto), Zerlina (Don Giovanni), Despina (Cosi Fan Tutte), Ria Krauss (In Adagio), Leonato (Much Ado About Nothing), Kate (Pirates of Penzance), Charmian (Antony and Cleopatra), Estelle (No Exit) and Nancy (Oliver!).  

Danie is the vocalist for Flowers of Hell, a trans-Atlantic experimental orchestra, and recently performed with them at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow and Tate Britain in London, as well as shows in Berlin and Prague. This summer she will be touring with Flowers of Hell to Los Angeles for a special performance at Golddiggers in Hollywood.

** Roedde House Museum would like to apologize to all who saw and were offended by the wording and imagery of the previous iteration of our July concert poster. We acknowledge that the name of the music group was in poor taste and we have addressed the issue with those concerned. We would like to emphasize that moving forward, the museum will be much more vigilant.  Thank you for your understanding as we learn from this experience. **
