Leo Zeitlin music at JMF in NYC

The Jewish Music Forum of the American Society of Jewish Music will present rare evening event, on Thursday, February 9th at 7 PM. Because these evenings have been so popular, you will need to make reservations to attend (see information below).

The topic is "The Music of Leo Zeitlin," one of the composers of the St. Petersburg School from the early 20th Century. On this occasion the wonderful performers from YIVO's Sidney Krum Young Artis Series will provide live music examples to accompany the talk, which will be given by Professor Paula Eisenstein Baker, with Dr. Michael Steinlauf at respondent.

Joining the Krum Young Artists will be Cantors Robert Abelson, Maria Dubinsky, and Martha Novick. The evening session will be held at the YIVO Institute at the Center for Jewish History (15 West 16th Street, NYC), and will be taped for later broadcast on the web.

The talk is free and open to the public, so you need to make a reservation for seats. Please call YIVO at 212-294-6127.
