"Cantorial Inspiration"
Sunday, February 17 at 3 pm

Cantor Sam Weiss, violinist Steven Greenman, and tsimbl (hammered dulcimer) player Pete Rushefsky bring synagogal sonorities to the fully restored Eldrdige Street Synagogue sanctuary with a program of traditional and new pieces rooted in the cantorial and klezmer traditions. The trio will look back to the Cantorial Golden Age, when a long succession of cantors inspired the worshipers of the Eldrdige Street congregation. They will also draw inspiration from the great 19th-century klezmer violinists of Berditchev, Ukraine, and from other favorite Jewish melodies.

Tickets: $15 adults; $12 students and seniors
