On February 2 at 1pm, in Schnurmacher Chapel, Chamber Music at Rodeph
Sholom will celebrate Sephardic Melody, a rich cultural heritage
expressed both in contemporary music and traditional, which blends
influences from the Iberian Peninsula, North Africa, Turkey, Greece,
and the Mediterranean. Guest artists, Paul Woodiel, on fiddle, and
guitarist Steve Gibb join cellist Eliot Bailen and flutist Susan
Rotholz in a program of Sephardic instrumental and vocal
interpretations both ancient and new, including music from the 19th
century collections of Emanuel Aguilar, the pianist composer, and
brother of the remarkable author and Jewish historian Grace Aguilar.
Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom, under the artistic direction of Eliot
Bailen, highlights both the best of the chamber music repertory and
our Jewish heritage in music in a series of free community concerts.
Admission is free and a light lunch is served preconcert . Please
