takes on a Hebrew accent in this version created by New York psychiatrist Eric Weitzner, adapting Jewish prayers and theological ideas to Bach’s transcendent music. Bach’s universality truly comes to the fore in this community Sing-in.
Selected movements of Bach’s Prayer in B Minor will be prepared in advance and sung by members of The Dessoff Choirs, and other movements will be sung by everyone in attendance. But there’s no obligation to sing – all are invited to experience the great affinity between the Christian and Jewish faiths, and the universality of Bach’s sublime music.
Both Dr. Weitzner and Dessoff’s Music Director Christopher Shepard will offer spoken commentary. Scores will be provided.
Come. Sing. Or listen. And learn about the Second Life of one of the pinnacles of the choral repertoire.
Tickets are only $15 ($10 Seniors/students).
