Kanonen Song 12:30:14The Judson Church off Washington Square was packed with 400 people on December 30, 2014, to honor the memory and brilliance of Adrienne Cooper, and to award Michael Wex with this year’s Dreaming in Yiddish prize.  Above is an image of the finale of the musical performance of the Kanonen song from Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera, translated from the German into Yiddish by Wex himself.  An all-star band backed us as we belted out the Army Song and others, accompanied by the brilliant puppetry and staging of Great Small Works and Power Point translations which made the text a little less inscrutable!  What a night!  Singers above include Sarah Gordon, Eleanor Reissa, Tine Kindermann, Dan Kahn, myself, and others.
