Fourth Coast Ensemble presents Laughterreise [LAHF-tuh-RIZE-uh], a comedy revue that answers the age-old question: What is art song and... why? Hosts Robbie Ellis (WFMT) and Gretchen Eng guide a tour of the genre's greatest hits and unknown gems performed by a troupe of musicians and comedians. Explore the rich musical heritage of the most intimate of art forms, served up with a soupçon of shade, and a touch of Weird Al.
The 7-day viewing window for this event has passed.
