You’ll hear music of Mendelssohn, Bernstein, Irving Berlin, Chicago‑area composers Max Janowski and Stacy Garrop, and many more, with styles ranging from opera and oratorio to Yiddish song and American Songbook standards. Discover the dynamic influences of religion and society on composers whose music does —and doesn’t—sound Jewish.
