Sidney Krum Young Artists Concert Series: The 2011 Spring Concert on Thursday, May 12, 2011, at 7:00pm. The Spring Concert will highlight the works of two great Jewish composers: Lazar Weiner, the prominent American composer of Jewish art songs, and Joseph Achron, the outstanding Russian-born violinist and composer, student of Arnold Schoenberg and one of the co-founders of Jewish Folk Music Society of St. Petersburg. Musicologist Marsha Dubrow will discuss the works of Lazar Weiner and violinist Yuval Waldman will introduce the music of Joseph Achron. In addition to Jewish-influenced violin works by Achron, the concert will present the first American performance of his brilliant arrangements of Paganini’s Caprices.

The performers will include outstanding young artists from the top American conservatories and music schools. More information will be posted as it becomes available.

The Sidney Krum Young Artist Concert Series and the Sidney Krum Jewish Music and Yiddish Theatre Memorial Collections are made possible by a generous gift from the Estate of Sidney Krum. Mr. Krum emigrated from the Polish town of Anatolia to the United States as a child and learned Yiddish folk songs from his mother. Both an attorney and an educator, Mr. Krum spent much of his career in the New York City public schools. Throughout his life, he was dedicated to his Jewish heritage, particularly its music, and to the education of the young people of New York.
