March 30, 31: Yiddish Glory: The Lost Songs of WWII. The New York premiere of this Grammy-nominated music program shines a spotlight on the everyday lives of Soviet Jews during World War II. The songs, originally by amateur authors, were collected by legendary ethnomusicologist Moisei Beregovsky and thought lost following his arrest during Stalin’s anti-Jewish purge. Decades later, the songs were discovered in a collection of unnamed boxes in Ukraine and revived by a team of dedicated artists and scholars determined to raise awareness of this lost chapter of history. Premiering for the first time in New York, this internationally acclaimed concert program features the preeminent Russian Roma trio Loyko, singer-songwriter Psoy Korolenko, and narration by Yiddish scholar Anna Shternshis, with captions in English, Yiddish, and Russian. 7 p.m., both nights.
