Scintillating Conversation - Historic Sound Recordings - Live Music

Join Mayrent Institute director Henry Sapoznik and donor Sherry Mayrent for a lecture and concert illustrating the rich holdings of the Mayrent Collection of Yiddish Recordings.

Collection founder and Institute donor Sherry Mayrent will offer an historic overview of her collection and explain the diversity and focus of one of the world's great Jewish sound archives. Institute founding director Henry Sapoznik will give a premier presentation on one of the most important Jewish sound discoveries of recent years. Sapoznik will discuss and play the earliest known recordings of Jewish music, a collection of cylinder recordings first issued by the Thomas Lambert Company of Chicago starting in 1901 and recently acquired by the Institute.

The Sound Salon will conclude with Sherry Mayrent (clarinet) and Henry Sapoznik (tenor guitar) playing selections learned from recordings in the collection.

The event is free and open to the public, but we do ask that you register so we know how many people to expect. Please take a moment and register at eepurl.com/bttx_9.

Funding for this Sound Salon is provided by Out of the Shadows: Rediscovering Jewish Music, Literature and Theater.
