Jewish Music into the Mainstream: Themes in Popular, Classical & Folk
with Historian Robert Cohen

Throughout the past century, American-Jewish composers and some non-Jewish musicians as well, have infused mainstream musical forms and styles- from popular song and musical theater to folk, bluegrass, and country: from classical and jazz to reggae and world music-with Jewish passions and yearning as well as Jewish musical themes and motifs: the sounds of Jewish chant and the texts of Jewish prayer.

Musical offerings include early jazz, early klezmer, contemporary folk, Eddie Cantor Johnny Mercer, Leonard Berstein, George Gershwin and more!

This event is the second part of a 3 part series entitled:
Jewish-American Music.

3rd part- Tuesday, December 21st (American-Jewish Music Comes of Age)

$15 per lecture/$40 for entire series
