The selections included in this concert seek to reflect the diverse influences of Jewish literary, cultural and religious traditions on sacred music, secular art music, and music written for the stage. Music will range from niggunim (mystical prayers in song that feature repetitive syllables instead of traditional lyrics to express what cannot be expressed by language) to settings of some of the most popular Broadway melodies; from Psalm settings by Salamone Rossi and Felix Mendelssohn and Kurt Weill’s “Kiddush” to Eric Whitacre’s “Five Hebrew Love Songs” and the music of Aaron Copland.
General Admission $20; Seniors $18; Students $5
