A Potpourri of Jewish Music: Ladino, Yiddish, American Musical and Popular Israeli
Monday, April 15, 2019 at 7pm, North County Lecture Series


Music has been a part of Jewish life since biblical times and remains integral to the Jewish religious and cultural experience. Jewish music tends to blend unique elements with aspects that reflect the cultures in which Jews have lived, composed, played instruments and sung. In this presentation, we will explore several distinct types of Jewish music including Ladino (with Sepahrdic roots), Yiddish (with E. European roots), American Jewish folk and Broadway music, including composers and songwriters as diverse as George Gershwin, Stephen Sondheim, Carole King and Paul Simon, and Israeli music with its rich tradition of immigrant and native-born musical artists. Do you think you have a favorite "style" of Jewish music? You may learn to appreciate something new during this musical lecture.
