Dr. Thomas Cimarusti, Professor of Music History at Florida Gulf Coast University, returns to the J for an enchanting multimedia presentation on Jewish identity in the music of Leonard Bernstein.
Leonard Bernstein is one of the most important conductors in American history. As a conductor, composer, pianist, music educator, author, and humanitarian Bernstein maintained a lifelong involvement with Judaism, writing several works of music, including Symphony No. 3 ("Kaddish"), which were derived from the Old Testament and the Chichester Psalms, a choral work with Hebrew text.
Access to this event is included for Star Arts, Chaverim and Hamsa-level supporters.
