Pacific Symphony welcomes the illustrious German chanteuse, Ute Lemper, for "Come to the Cabaret," a revival of the seductive and sophisticated music that was heard in intimate, smoke-filled nightclubs across Germany, France and America during the 1920s and '30s. Watch a video about the upcoming concert below!

Led by Music Director Carl St.Clair, the orchestra opens with Kurt Weill's entertaining social satire, "The Seven Deadly Sins," performed with Lemper, who is widely-acknowledged as the ultimate interpreter of Weill and European cabaret, and the evocative vocal quartet Hudson Shad. After intermission, the orchestra performs Gershwin's "An American in Paris," a rhapsodic expression of a man's love for a city and life itself. Then Lemper, who is also known for her roles on Broadway as Velma Kelly in "Chicago" and Sally Bowles in "Cabaret," sings a hybrid arrangement of Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm/Naughty Baby," followed by four songs made famous by the legendary French singer Édith Piaf: "Padam Padam," "Ne Me Quitte Pas," "L'Accordéoniste" and "La Vie en Rose."

"Come to the Cabaret," takes place Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 8-10, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, when the lobby transforms into a "Piano Bar" from 7-8 p.m and during intermission. A preview talk with Alan Chapman begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25-$112.

Classical Connections, "An American in Paris and More," takes place Sunday, Nov. 11, at 3 p.m. and features Gershwin's orchestra work and Lemper singing the arrangement of "I Got Rhythm/Naughty Baby" and four songs by Piaf, led by Music Director Carl St.Clair. Tickets for this concert are $25-$95. For more information about any of these concerts or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or click HERE.
