Paul Abraham - His Music, His Life, A Dark Fairy Tale

The Austrian-American Society of Milwaukee cordially invites you to attend the Austrian-American Day celebration with music from Paul Abraham. He was a Hungarian-Jewish composer, who achieved worldwide fame with a string of successful operattas and music for films in the early 1930’s, the most popular being Victoria and Her Hussar, Floer of Hawaii, and Ball at the Savoy. Abraham was forced to flee Germany in 1933, his music banned. His deeply tragic life was like a dark fairy tale.

The Austrian American Society is pleased to welcome back Rachel Renee, the popular singer, dancer and actress; Stuart Thompson, lyric baritone from Chicago, and Jennifer McCabe, a collaborative pianist, vocal coach and music director.

Price: $19.00 includes wine reception with cheese, crackers, Viennese desserts, Kaffee mit Schlag and piano music by John Pucher.
