Cantata Singers: If the contemporary zeitgeist had a composer in residence, it just might be Kurt Weill (pictured here). He has been recently spotted with Lotte Lenya on Broadway, and his "Mahagonny" opera seems to be popping up everywhere these days. But how well do we really know Weill's output? This year, the Cantata Singers is devoting much of its season to exploring some lesser-known Weill works, beginning with a benefit performance on Sept. 23 of his "Lindbergh Flight" Cantata at the Collings Foundation Aviation Museum in Stow, followed on Nov. 9 by the first local performance of Weill's "Legend of the Dead Soldier" in Jordan Hall. 617-868-5885 or cantatasingers.org
