Top off your Sunday afternoon at Merkin Concert Hall on June 10
with a performance by the acclaimed Jewish People’s Philharmonic Chorus (JPPC),
a 40-member ensemble praised in The Jewish Week for its “upbeat Broadway bounce.”
The chorus captivates the house with its vocal skill and expressive delivery.
The JPPC sings exclusively in Yiddish.
Conductor Binyumen Schaechter
provides engaging and informative introductions to each song,
ensuring that this annual spring event is “heymish” even for the Yiddish-challenged.
Fans have come to expect the unexpected. There’s always something new –
whether it’s a basic folksong, a spirited labor anthem,
or an American standard translated into Yiddish,
all tunes are cast in fresh, lush harmonies, some with a rock or jazzy feel.
This year’s program,
TO EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON: THE YEAR IN YIDDISH SONG,
shines a brand-new musical light on some traditional holiday tunes
(“Dayeynu” and “Khad-gadyo” will never be the same!)
and celebrates secular holidays as only the JPPC can
(“Auld Lang Syne” and a Labor Day medley – in Yiddish!).
On a more serious note, guests will hear a moving new arrangement of the
“Partisans’ Hymn” (a world premier) to honor Yom HaShoah.
All attendees will receive a complimentary printed program,
replete with lyrics and full translations.
