Sacred Symphonies with Rabbi Don

The Bible has inspired creative interpretation (midrash) not just by ancient rabbis but by musicians, artists and poets throughout the ages, including modern Jewish classical composers. In this three-part class, participants will listen to and analyze three Biblically based modern compositions: Bloch’s Shelomo Rhapsody, Bernstein’s Jeremiah Symphony and his Chichester Psalms. No musical background necessary.

Thursday, April 25 at 7:30 PM –  Rhapsody by Ernst Bloch – A study in leadership and power based on the book of Ecclesiastes

Thursday, May 2 at Noon – Symphony #1 – Jeremiah by Leonard Bernstein  *Bring your own dairy brown bag lunch; we’ll provide drinks and dessert

Thursday, May 16 at Noon  – Chichester Psalms by Leonard Bernstein   *Bring your own dairy brown bag lunch; we’ll provide drinks and dessert
