Jazz Composers Alliance To Present The Death Of Simone Weil

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 12, 2017 - 8:00pm

Concert kicks off Jazz Composers Alliance's 32nd concert season

"This is music for mind and soul." - Irwin Block, Montreal Gazette

"There's an impressive variety of textures, colors, and rhythm in all of the JCA's collaborations, but it's never attempted anything like Katz's Simone Weil. More than an hour long, with a text by Katz's wife, the poet Paula Tatarunis, this work is eerie and moving, and even swinging. Rebecca Shrimpton sings the lucidly set text." - Jon Garelick, The Boston Phoenix

The JCA Orchestra, featuring vocalist Rebecca Shrimpton, will start its 32nd concert season with a performance of composer Darrell Katz"s epic improvisational song cycle, The Death Of Simone Weil, with text by the late Paula Tatarunis. The concert takes place at The Berklee Performance Center, 130 Massachusetts Avenue in Boston. Tickets are $12; $8 if picked up at least a day before show, are available at the BPC box office or online at
