Shirah Concert 2017

Beside the Golden Door


Annual Concert for a Bold Spiritual Community of Resistance and Love

Sunday, May 21, 2017, 4 PM
130 W 30, NYC

The Emma Lazarus powerful 1883 sonnet, “The New Colossus,” inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, has served as a beacon of welcome and hope to generations of immigrants who came to our shores seeking refuge and freedom.
We can revel in the chamber music, songs, liturgical settings, choral music and works for Yiddish theater created by immigrant composers, Bela Bartok, Ernest Bloch, Kurt Weill, Sholom Secunda, Irving Berlin, Miguel del Aguila, and Regina Spektor,
performed by Elana Arian, violin/singer, Ivan Barenboim, clarinet, Adria Benjamin, viola, Tomoko Fujita, cello, John Riddle, tenor, Beth Robin, piano, Joyce Rosenzweig, pianist/conductor, Amanda Seigel, soprano, Sebu Sirinian, violin, Lisa Tipton, violin,
Sally Wilfert, singer, Cantor Steve Zeidenberg, singer, and the CBST Community Chorus.

Today, as immigration and open borders are in danger, come for an afternoon of glorious music and great performances that remind us how important it is to continue working together to “Open the gates of righteousness!”

Proceeds will support Music at CBST.
Sponsors will be acknowledged in Program and are eligible for the “Culture Pass.”
Seating is limited.
