Songs of Sorrow & Survival:
Recalling the Holocaust Through Music

Just as it does in every era, music played an important role during the dark days of World War II. This presentation will survey the songs written at that time, as well as later compositions that reflect our ongoing need to remember.

$20 by April 17, $23 starting April 18 

Speaker:
Dr. Marsha Bryan Edelman earned degrees from Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary, and has taught Jewish music to students of all ages for more than 40 years. Professor Emerita of Music and Education at Gratz College, where she served on the faculty for nearly 25 years, she is a much sought-after speaker on a wide range of topics relating to the nature and history of Jewish music, and has been acclaimed for both the breadth of her knowledge and for the popular appeal of her presentations to audiences across the United States and in Israel. In addition, she has produced and arranged the vocal and instrumental scores for several recordings, and her choral arrangements have been performed in Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and across the US and Israel.
