A Jewish Encounter with Opera
April 7 , 4:00 pm
Please join us for an afternoon at the opera, in Scarsdale! This talented company of singers made up of WRT Clergy, friends and the congregation’s Adult Choir, will join together to offer music that expresses the
connection between Jewish life and the opera stage. Pianist Lachlan Glen, an alumnus of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, joins us, sharing his operatic expertise. Enjoy the
natural acoustics of the beautiful Westchester Reform Temple sanctuary as you experience the simplicity and grandeur of the human voice.
A Jewish Experience with Opera is the brainchild of Cantor Jill Abramson, who is fascinated with the nexus of Jewish culture and the operatic repertoire.
Wine and cheese reception to follow program.
This annual celebration of music is supported in part by the Stephen H. Merkel Fund for Yiddish Music and Culture, honoring the memory of our beloved Cantor Merkel z”l.
A suggested contribution of $15 supports continued programs for the community.
