Event description

Description

“Soundscapes of Modernity: Jews and Music in Polish Cities” presents music of Polish Jews that is little known to American audiences—choral pieces from 19th-century progressive (“Reform”) congregations, compositions associated with Jewish music societies, and avant-garde works by Jewish composers.

Recently performed at Rutgers University, "Soundscapes of Modernity" was enthusiastically received:

“[The concert] was quite brilliant and reminded me not only of how much I love listening to live musical performances but also of how music can be an important window into a complex and contested past.”

“We know what we lost in the ‘old country,’ but we are always hoping against hope to find any trace of the magnificent culture that existed among the Jews of Poland. You gave us a magnificent portrait of the differing styles that were popular during that entire inter-war period.”

Join us for this fantastic exploration of Jewish, Music, and 19th Century Polish Cities.
