Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom Presents Sephardic Melody

On February 2 at 1pm, in Schnurmacher Chapel, Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom will celebrate Sephardic Melody, a rich cultural heritage expressed both in contemporary music and traditional, which blends influences from the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa, Turkey, Greece, and the Mediterranean. Guest artists, Paul Woodiel, on fiddle, and guitarist Steve Gibb join cellist Eliot Bailen and flutist Susan Rotholz in a program of Sephardic instrumental and vocal interpretations both ancient and new, including music from the 19th century collections of Emanuel Aguilar, the pianist composer, and brother of the remarkable author and Jewish historian Grace Aguilar. Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom, under the artistic direction of Eliot Bailen, highlights both the best of the chamber music repertory and our Jewish heritage in music in a series of free community concerts. Admission is free and a light lunch is served preconcert . Please rsvp by phone to 646 454 3039.

Congregation Rodeph Sholom, 7 West 83rd Street, can be reached by subway or bus to 86th Street and Central Park West. Walk three blocks south to 83rd Street.
