AMERIKE DI PREKHTIKE
(America the Beautiful)
This 45-minute a cappella concert,
celebrating 360 years of American Jewish life (1654-2014),
features unique Yiddish choral arrangements
in distinctly American musical styles:
blues, jazz, spirituals,
Second Avenue theater hits, labor anthems, and more.
In these works you will recognize
America’s pervasive influence on Jewish culture –
and vice versa.
English translations provided.
