This extraordinary multicultural event features three choirs: the Zamir Chorale of Boston, America’s foremost Jewish choral ensemble; VOICES 21C, a diverse choir dedicated to positive interactions, social justice, and global understanding; and the Boston Community Gospel Choir, which often performs at the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The groups will each separately perform songs from the Jewish, Muslim and Christian cultures respectively, and then join together to perform music that transcends the collective cultures. The idea of shared values, especially in this turbulent time, rises above our many cultures and connects us. By using music to explore the themes of freedom, we seek to create a culture of understanding, faith, and hope.

In partnership with the Museum of African American History, Consulate General of Israel to New England, and AJC Boston.

Three renowned performers of Eastern European Jewish music come together in this exceptional new trio: Lorin Sklamberg, co-founder of the legendary Klezmatics; uniquely innovative clarinetist Merlin Shepherd, and the remarkable vocalist/pianist Polina Shepherd, originally from Siberia.
Each performer represents a different nation, yet their backgrounds are closely related, their ancestors emigrating from the Ukraine to find a better world elsewhere. This fresh collaboration blends traditional and contemporary Yiddish and Russian song with klezmer styles and Southern Mediterranean music. Influenced by several cultures and maintaining individual styles, the trio plays original and traditional material with freedom and spontaneity. With mournful solo clarinet, bouncy village songs, and some fiery vocals, their performance takes us on a breathtaking musical journey that is full of spirited joy and deep emotion.

A Celebration of Composer Yehudi Wyner, Boston, MA, 22 Mar 2017

A Celebration of Composer Yehudi Wyner
The First Annual Michael B. Rukin Memorial Concert

Wed, Mar 22, 2017—6 PM reception, 7:30 PM concert
Jordan Hall,
30 Gainsborough St.,
Boston, MA

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a Grammy Award among countless honors,
Yehudi Wyner is a treasure of Boston classical music. "A musical mensch-in-residence," the Boston Globe describes him as "a composer with a fiercely independent spirit, a modernist who believes that serious music can and should bring sensual pleasure."

The concert will capture the eclectic diversity of his work, performed by outstanding artists, including: clarinetist Richard Stolzman, violinist Daniel Stepner, double bassist Susan Hagen, Susan Davenny-Wyner conducting, Yehudi on the piano and many more--plus a few surprises. Following the performance, Pulitzer Prize-winning music critic Lloyd Schwartz engages Yehudi in a conversation.

They were two giants of Italian music: One Catholic and hugely famous, one Jewish and utterly forgotten. Claudio Monteverdi "invented" opera; Salomone Rossi—Monteverdi's contemporary in age, education, and stature—revolutionized Jewish concert music with compositions for Hebrew prayers, yet today, few know his name. Enter Profeti della Quinta, a young, male vocal quintet from Galilee, on a mission to change that. Hear the works of
these two great Italian composers side by side.

Our Café will include the first part of Michale Boganim’s documentary Odessa Odessa (2005) which captures the former yiddish stars of Odessa living out their last days in deep poverty in the crumbling city, readings from the Boris Dralyuk’s new translation of Babel’s Odessa stories published this year by Pushkin Press and songs from Russian / Yiddish maestro Polina Shepherd and London Yiddish Choir.

The fear of the other is a primal biological instinct. The other is scary. The other is naturally perceived as a threat. Authors and directors exploit that fear in movies about the extraterrestrial aliens. The chauvinist politicians "divide and conquer" by picturing migrants and refugees in the eyes of their electorate as that scary Other (how topical it is today!). By launching the program GoyFriend -- the Jew in the Eyes of the Other - together with my colleagues - Sasha Lurje and Litvakus we're digging out those ancient fears from the Baltic and Slavic folklore. We want to place them in the bright daylight and examine, and also see attempts to near, understand, reflect and sometimes accept the Other in one's own narrative.

The event is co-presented by Ashkenaz and the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, and is sponsored by JCC Association’s Making Music Happen Centennial Grant Initiative, funded by a grant from Marvin J. Pertzik and the Mary Livingston Griggs and Mary Griggs Burke Foundation.

A unique collaboration between a new york-based klezmer band Litvakus (originally from Belarus) and a Berlin-based singer Sasha Lurje, who is well-known in Mtl due to her association with Klezkanada.

Goyfriend (druG-Goy) is a new program featuring one of the most sought after voices in klezmer music and critically acclaimed Litvakus, a band known for its raw, "rootsy" and energetic performance of Jewish music.This program offers for the first time to western audiences a chance not only to hear rare northern European Jewish music, but more importantly the context in which that music was created. The brainchild of Latvian native, Lurje and Belarussian Zisl Slepovitch - Litvakus’ bandleader, and an accomplished composer, clarinetist and ethno-musicologist, and is based on their extensive research and field recordings in their native countries and the surrounding area.

Joy is the modus vivendi for this Pan-Balkan gathering, and music is the recipe, bringing the traditional, the experimental, elders, youth, foreign-born, and American-born all to feast at the same generous table. With more than 50 groups contributing their time and talents, you will find your cup of tea (as well as some feta, dolma, and spiced meat morsels). High spirits are fueled by such preeminent performers as Eleanor Reissa with Frank London’s Klezmer Brass Allstars, or Merita Halili, Raif Hyseni & Montclair State University Ensemble, while burgeoning talents shine in teen band Cocek Nation and Young Bulgarian Voices New York. Enchantment pervades the Atrium where Tenores de Aterúe, the Yale Slavic Chorus, and others immerse listeners in vocal wonderment. Brooklyn’s own beloved Balkan brass acts (Slavic Soul Party, Raya) are well represented, and of course Zlatne Uste, New York’s pioneering Balkan brass band and festival sponsors, performs both nights. A complete schedule will be posted on the website
