Sound and Sense (Jewish Music @ York) Immigrant Waves and Musical Tastes
This live-only, listen-and-learn roundtable explores the great range of Jewish musical expression in the long arch of Canadian history. Expert panelists offer insight on three Jewish musical cultures from three distinct moments, with musical samples and commentary: Eric Stein on pre-WWII Yiddish immigrant musical worlds, Christopher Silver on post-war Sephardi / Moroccan immigrant musical worlds, and Miranda Crowdus on the contemporary Montreal / Canadian musical scene with its hybrid mix of immigrant musical worlds. Facilitated discussion and open-floor Q&A to follow. Join us for an exciting late afternoon of sound and sense.
Sound and Sense: Jewish Music @ York is presented by the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies and by the Department of Music in the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design at York University. The series has been made possible via the generous support of the Azrieli Foundation.
