David Sedaris at The Colonial Theater in Pittsfield, Apr 13

David Sedaris is coming to The Colonial Theater this Friday. Here’s some info from Berkshire Theatre Group, “With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, best-selling American author, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.”

I’ve been a fan of David Sedaris for years, and have always wanted to attend one of his stage appearances. He has been to the Colonial several times, but this Friday is the first time that I’ll be free when he is in Pittsfield. I’ve got my tickets, and can’t wait! Tickets are still available (see below for details).

Albany Symphony Orchestra: Memories of the Old Country

7:30pm $27, 3 Concert Series $77

The centerpiece of the December concert is a Klezmer Fantasy for Cello and Orchestra, written by Williamstown composer Stephen Dankner for the brilliant Israeli-American virtuoso, Matt Haimovitz. Matt gained particular attention for his multi-year solo recital tour in unconventional venues, bringing concert music to new listeners (in roadhouses, bars, pizza parlors, etc…). For this work, Dankner imagines the orchestra as a giant Klezmer Band, and pays homage to his own and Haimovitz’s Jewish ancestry. Also on the program, Haimovitz performs Shostakovich’s achingly beautiful Cello Concerto No. 1, and the orchestra performs Bartok’s Rumanian Folk Dances and the Schubert “Unfinished” Symphony.
