Yiddish Flavors of Love: A Musical Celebration
Infuse the taste of Yiddish culture into your Father's Day with a mix of songs inspired by love: paternal, patriotic, poignant, or passionate. The Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus (JPPC) is a multigenerational forty-voice ensemble led by Binyumen Schaechter. They'll surprise you with their all-Yiddish repertoire and ear-catching arrangements. This year, you'll hear classic hits like the Godfather theme and popular tunes by Puccini and Handel. Whether you're fluent or Yiddish-challenged, expect a heymish afternoon. You'll stay connected with the help of Schaechter's informative intros, English supertitles, and a keepsake booklet with full lyric translations. After brunch or before dinner, treat Dad to some delicious Yiddish four-part harmony.
