Presented by Miles Hoffman, NPR Music Commentator for Morning Edition; nationally renowned violist and Artistic director of the American Chamber Players

Please join us for a very special opportunity to meet and hear Miles Hoffman, who has been educating and entertaining on National Public Radio (NPR) for nearly thirty years. Using examples from the works of composers such as George Gershwin, Erich Korngold, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Ernest Bloch, Richard Rodgers and Benny Goodman, Mr. Hoffman will discuss the distinctive qualities and attributes that define Jewish music as “Jewish.” He will also examine aspects of Jewish tradition, history, culture and psychology to explain the disproportionate representation of Jews among the ranks of great musical artists of the last one hundred years.

A light lunch (complimentary) will follow the program. This program is dedicated to the memory of Fran Barth (z”l), a beloved friend and member of our group, cherished wife of Hirsh Barth, and treasured mother and grandmother. Fran loved Jewish music in all forms. Many thanks to Robbie Milberg for conceiving this wonderful tribute and for making it possible with her very generous sponsorship.
