Trio Sefardi, NYC, 17 Dec 2016

Please join us for a wonderful evening celebrating Sephardic music and culture on Saturday December 17. 2016 at the Highland Park Conservative Temple Congregation Anshe Emeth.

At 6:30 PM, a special film, Flory's Flame, will be shown before the concert. This recent documentary produced by two New Jersey filmmakers and shown at venues worldwide, celebrates legendary Sephardic National Heritage Fellow musician Flory Jagoda. Flory's daughter, Betty Murphy will be there to answer questions after the film. We also hope that 93 years young Flory will be able to attend.

At 8:00 PM, Trio Sefardi will celebrate this special Sephardic music with three amazing musicians including Susan Gaeta (vocals, guitar), who apprenticed with Flory Jagoda, Howard Bass (lute, guitar) and Tina Chancey (bowed strings). Trio Sefardi brings a unique perspective to this historic Ladino musical heritage that has been preserved through the efforts of Flory Jagoda and Trio Sefardi.
