Back at Symphony Space after sold-out concerts each of the last 3 years,this year's JPPC concert will focus on Yiddish folk songs, both well-known and unknown. Songs to be performed include Afn pripetshik, Der Rebe Elimeylekh, Rozhinkes mit mandlen, Tum balalaika and a great bouquet of lesser-known Yiddish folksongs. The songs will draw a picture of what life was like for our Eastern European ancestors 100-200 years ago. This concert also includes works by Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, Avrom Sutzkever and Josh Waletzky. Also featuring Soloist Temma Schaechter of Di Shekhter-tekhter and Pianist Shinae Kim.
