VOCALS: Songs from the Heart – Ute Lemper
March 20th – 2:00 PM EDT/11:00 AM PDT
Whether in concert halls, recording albums or gracing the stage of a musical, Ute Lemper has easily become of our most passionate and accomplished performers.
That wide range of material she handles will be on display in Songs from the Heart on Saturday. The concert will be streaming from Europe and includes songs from the musicals Cabaret and Chicago; from The Threepenny Opera; songs made famous by Édith Piaf and Marlene Dietrich, a song Lemper composed and also a song by Joni Mitchell.
I’ve seen her in multiple concert performances and also in the Broadway revival of Chicago. She’s absolutely amazing.
Joining Lemper for this concert will be Vana Gierig on piano; Tim Ouimette on trumpet; Matt Parrish on bass and Todd Turkish on drums and percussion.
Tickets are $24.99 and allow for 48 hours of access.
