PEOPLE OF THE LIBRETTO: The Singer-Songwriter Edition

Previous editions of the People of the Libretto series have surveyed music heard on the biggest stages: Broadway musical theater, Hollywood movie music, and 1960s' pop music created in the Brill Building. This year, the focus moves to the more intimate art form created by singer-songwriters. Included will be songs by such legends as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Paul Simon, Carole King, Janis Ian, Billy Joel, Randy Newman, and Carly Simon.

TCC members Rachel Dahill-Fuchel, Trudy Elins, David Klein, Jennifer Naparstek Klein, Kim Kramer, Joshua Nelson, Dan Wyman, and Michelle Lang Zalph will present commentary and sing some of the great songs created by these Jewish songwriters. Louise Moed will provide piano accompaniment.

This same production will also be performed at our Sunday Adult Perspectives session on January 26.




The City Congregation holds Shabbat celebrations twice a month on Friday evenings at 7:30 PM at the 14th Street Y (344 East 14th Street) in Manhattan. Each Shabbat includes a 40-minute humanistic service and a presentation by a guest speaker or TCC members on a Jewish cultural topic or current issue, followed by a pot-luck dessert. Three times a year we gather at 6:30pm for a catered dinner before the service and program. Guests are always welcome. Childcare is available for children 11 and younger.

All dates and programs are subject to change. To confirm events and for more information, contact the office at 212-213-1002 or
