Celebrate the life and work of Adrienne Cooper, Yiddish singer, scholar, and former Assistant Director at YIVO. Stars of the klezmer and Yiddish world, including Frank London, Sarah Gordon, Michael Winograd, and Joshua Dolgin present an evening of music from In Love and In Struggle: The Musical Legacy of the Jewish Labor Bund (YIVO, 1999), an album that featured Adrienne and reflects her passion for justice and Yiddish. This year's concert also awards Joshua Dolgin (a.k.a. Socalled) with the 2015 Adrienne Cooper Dreaming in Yiddish Award for his work as a singer, composer, hip-hop artist, and puppeteer.

All proceeds go to the Adrienne Cooper Fund for Dreaming in Yiddish, which supports artists working in Yiddish. Co-sponsored by YIVO in association with Yiddish New York, GOH Productions, The National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene, and the Museum of Jewish Heritage.
