A competition in how not to singNews
Did we even know that there is a Lotte Lenya Singing Competition?
Lenya, who married Kurt Weill, was known for her cracked voice and wicked humour. She was a great actress.
Melody and accuracy were not her forte.
The 24th annual Lotte Lenya Competition has just been won by Amanda Sheriff with a $20k first prize, funded by the Weill-Lenya estate.
