Last March, the Feinstein Center seeded its new project “Sounds Jewish” with an amazing evening of music and conversation. Here’s some of what went down that night with Aaron Bisman, Zach Fredman, Yosef Goldman, Chana Rothman, and Joey Weisenberg.
This coming fall, the Feinstein Center will launch a full year of “Sounds Jewish” by delving into the multiple ways that music has transformed Jewish life in the United States. In a series of programs and concerts,musicians, ethnomusicologists, historians of music, cantors, and music producers will attune us to the shifting ethnic, religious, and institutional boundaries of Jewish life. Come add your voice to the chorus of questions, as we ask together what “sounds Jewish” and why. Keep an eye out for Zion80, DeLeon, a Free to Be You and Me festival, and more!
