Center for Jewish History
Soundscapes of Modernity: Jews and Music in Polish Cities - 7pm
15 West 16th St.
New York, NY 10011
Price: Free

presented by the American Society for Jewish Music

“Soundscapes of Modernity: Jews and Music in Polish Cities” presents music of Polish Jews that is little known to American audiences—choral pieces from 19th-century progressive (“Reform”) congregations, compositions associated with Jewish music societies, and avant-garde works by Jewish composers.

Recently performed at Rutgers University, "Soundscapes of Modernity" was enthusiastically received:

“[The concert] was quite brilliant and reminded me not only of how much I love listening to live musical performances but also of how music can be an important window into a complex and contested past.”

“We know what we lost in the ‘old country,’ but we are always hoping against hope to find any trace of the magnificent culture that existed among the Jews of Poland. You gave us a magnificent portrait of the differing styles that were popular during that entire inter-war period.”

Join us for this fantastic exploration of Jewish, Music, and 19th Century Polish Cities.

The Crested Butte Opera Studio, CBMF Symphony Orchestra, conductor Brian Garman and director Joshua Major join forces to bring Verdi’s comedic masterpiece, "Falstaff," to the Festival. The title role will be shared by Ben Bloomfield, who starred in last year's "Gianni Schicchi," and the noted American baritone Todd Thomas, who has been widely praised for his performance of the role. A recent rave from Opera News proclaimed, “It’s hard to imagine there are many better Falstaffs working on North American stages today [than Todd Thomas].”

Bernstein in Song - 7:30pm
606 6th St
Crested Butte, CO 81224
970-349-7487
Price: $0-$50

Join us for this concert celebrating the music of Leonard Bernstein during our season when we honor the 100th anniversary of the composer’s birth. From his earliest days, Bernstein demonstrated an absorbing interest in musical theater, organizing teenage productions of The Mikado and a highly unique interpretation of Carmen, in which he played the title role. Beginning with On The Town in 1944, Bernstein wrote a series of groundbreaking musical theater works over his lifetime that still hold the stage to this day, including Wonderful Town (1953); Candide (1956), and West Side Story (1957). Each of these works showcased Bernstein’s unique ability to blend popular and classical music to create a vibrantly and distinctly American musical theater idiom. In 1971, he was commissioned by Jacqueline Kennedy to write Mass for opening of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C., a wholly unique and somewhat controversial work that combines portions of the Roman Catholic Mass with more English selections penned by Bernstein, Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz, and even pop star Paul Simon.

For this concert, Maestro Tito Muñoz, the Crested Butte Festival Orchestra and the acclaimed Crested Butte Opera Studio will team up for their first joint concert of the season. The evening will include selections from the composer’s popular musicals cited above, in an unforgettable evening of sparkling music, witty words and scintillating orchestration—Bernstein at his finest.
