Pre-Hanukkah Blues: A Concert Celebrating Jewish Composers

  • Congregation Sha’arei Shalom (map)

Featuring wonderful music like Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, Songs of a Wayfarer by Gustav Mahler, the thrilling Grand Russian Fantasia by the great cornetist Jules Levy, and, last but not least, a medley of songs from Fiddler on the Roof, featuring members of Congregation Sha’arei Shalom! I’ll have a couple originals on the program, too – although I am not Jewish, my name is Hebrew in origin…

Come and enjoy some wonderful music, share a laugh or two and celebrate the Jewishness of some of history’s greatest musical minds!

Wolfe. And did we mention there will be a Desmond Child & Rouge reunion (with Maria Vidal, Diana Grasselli, & Myriam Valle) ? Yup …. The Capitol Records alums will be doing “Our Love Insane”!
