An Evening in 1920s Berlin: Ian Wekwerth of Palast Orchester

An Evening in 1920s Berlin: Ian Wekwerth of Palast Orchester

Dashing and dapper, Max Raabe and the members of the Palast Orchester might have walked straight out of the Golden Age of Berlin in the 1920s. Together, they have built up an acclaimed international reputation due to their sophisticated recreation of timeless tunes by legends like Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and Kurt Weill. The music has a special charm and elegance, but there is an unexpected quality—German humor. Raabe is the driving force behind the orchestra, which was founded in 1986. While his peers were heavily into punk music, Raabe sought out other college-age aficionados who were similarly obsessed with the music of old Hollywood and the legendary cabaret heights of the Weimar Republic. At the time, pianist Ian Wekwerth studied to be an aeronautical engineer in college. But Raabe roped him into the orchestra during its formative years, and Wekwerth has been playing with them ever since. In the early 2000s, the orchestra began touring North America and Wekwerth, as English native speaker, was soon asked to hold lectures on the history of the band and the Weimar Era. 

Max Raabe & Palast Orchester will perform on March 11, at 7:30 pm at Benaroya Hall. One day earlier, we welcome Ian Wekwerth to the Cloud Room Lounge where he will play a few tunes on the baby grand piano and discuss the orchestra’s performances that embody the high style and musical glory of the '20s and '30s and the contributions of Jewish composers and lyricists.

The event is free and seating is limited. Reserve your ticket here!

The Cloud Room Presents: A Holiday Party with LADIES!

The Cloud Room Presents: A Holiday Party with LADIES!

Join us for an intimate holiday show at The Cloud Room!

Seattle's Ladies was born from a shared love of Christmas between the three stellar vocalists, each an ascendant artist in her own right. When Lydia Ramsey, Erin Austin (OK Sweetheart), and Miranda Zickler (Kuinka) sing together, their voices ring out with a glowing warmth, clear and bright as a deep winters night. Mezzosoprano Ramsey handles the high harmonies and Zickler, the alto, takes on the low harmonies, while Contralto Austin pirouettes melodically between them. Each vocalist has a unique, captivating timbre; their respective solos are arresting. Yet, when they knit together in harmony, the result is profoundly transporting and timeless.    

Come celebrate the holidays while raising funds and awareness for Seattle nonprofit, Notice A Need, dedicated to providing care for the homeless.  Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to funding this cause.

Limited tickets available. Buy Now!

$40 Pre-Sale! Now - November 1st

$45 Advance Tickets

$60 VIP Package - Includes a pre-show meet & greet with the artists, pre-show acoustic performance, a signed poster and glass of bubbly! Doors open to VIPs at 6:30pm.

Compassionate Communication Workshop

Compassionate Communication Workshop

What if the holidays were truly a time of peace and joy with those you love? 

For so many of us, the holidays are a loaded experience: even though we want to celebrate and enjoy this time with our loved ones, the combination of overstuffed calendars, large family gatherings and our own lofty expectations can lead us to fall into patterns of anxiety, conflict and disconnection. 

How would your holiday season change this year if the conflicts you experienced were generative, rather than destructive? If you could process your annoyance and irritation without isolating or blaming? If you could access compassion and empowerment, even when faced with challenging words or actions?

Join us for an afternoon of exploring the basics of Compassionate Communication!

In this session you will:

  • Learn useful ways to ground yourself and regain balance in stressful or uncomfortable situations.

  • Gain clarity about how to respond lovingly in the inevitable moments of challenge that arise while spending condensed time with your family members and relatives.

  • Upgrade the way you think, speak, and relate in order to experience a more joyful, authentic and connecting holiday season.

Investment: $50 per person
