From Psalm to Lamentation: A Concert of Cantorial Masterpieces With Cantor Netanel Hershtik, The Hampton Synagogue Choir and Amernet String Quartet
Sunday, December 2, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EST)
New York, NY
In the spirit of the Eldridge Street Synagogue’s first great cantor, Pinhas Minkowsky, we honor the Golden Age of cantorial music with one of its finest modern proponents, Cantor Netanel Hershtik. The concert traces a rich tradition of cantorial masterpieces capturing their fundamental duality: joy and despair, longing and redemption, the deeply haunting and the wildly celebratory.
Presented with Pro Musica Hebraica
Pro Musica Hebraica, an organization founded by Charles and Robyn Krauthammer, is dedicated to the revival of lost or neglected Jewish music.
Part of the Museum’s Lost & Found Music Series
