FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Storm Large to Kick Off Weinberg Center Season

 

FREDERICK, Md., Friday, September 8, 2017 — Cabaret singer Storm Large will take the stage at the Weinberg Center for the Arts on Friday, September 29 as the first live event in the 2017-2018 season. From her rise to prominence on CBS’s “Rock Star: Supernova” to sold-out concerts with Le Bonheur and Pink Martini, the musical powerhouse brings her intoxicating voice to Frederick for an evening of tortured and titillating love songs. The performance will begin at 8:00pm.

Tickets begin at $20 and may be purchased online at WeinbergCenter.org, by calling the Box Office at 301.600.2828, or in person at 20 West Patrick St. Discounts are available for students, children, military, and seniors.

Storm Large shot to national prominence in 2006 as a finalist on the CBS show “Rock Star: Supernova,” where she built a fan base that follows her around the world to this day. Highlights of the 2017-2018 season include debuts with the San Francisco, Pittsburgh, Phoenix, Vancouver, Jacksonville, and RTÉ National Symphonies, as well as return engagements with the Houston, Toronto, and Toledo Symphonies. Large and her band, Le Bonheur, continue to tour concert halls across the country. The 2016-2017 season included debuts with the Atlanta, Baltimore, and BBC Symphony Orchestras, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, as well as return engagements with National Symphony Orchestra and Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Large made her debut with the band Pink Martini in 2011, singing four sold-out concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. She continues to tour internationally with the band. Her memoir, “Crazy Enough,” was released in 2012 and was named Oprah’s Book of the Week. In the fall of 2014, Large and Le Bonheur released a record entitled “Le Bonheur,” designed to capture their sublime and subversive interpretations of the American songbook.
