The Leo Kraft 90th Birthday Concert at the Center for Jewish History

On Sunday, March 11th at 3 PM the Society will present The Leo Kraft 90th Birthday Concert at the Center for Jewish History. This performance will feature some of New York's finest chamber music players, including flutist Patricia Spencer, clarinetists Charles Neidich and Ayako Oshima, violinist Renne Jolles, violist Mark Halloway, and cellist Marcy Rosen, as well pianist Morey Ritt, who will premiere Testimonium, a new work Kraft has written for her.

Among other works on the program are New Songs from Old, a fantasy for solo clarinet based on traditional Jewish motifs and Seven Hebrew Songs to poems by medieval Hebrew poets, sung by the American baritone Thomas Meglioranza, with David Jolley, horn and Konstantza Chernov, piano. Hailed by The Boston Globe for his “vocal distinction and expressive warmth,” Meglioranza is one of this country’s most sought-after and unique young singers. The program will conclude with Omaggio, in memory of Primo Levi.

This concert is also scheduled to be video taped for archiving on the American Society for Jewish Music website. If you are in the New York Metropolitan area you will also find ticket information there.

The program is co-sponsored by the American Jewish Historical Society and Centro Primo Levi
