Jewish Music Institute December Show Wed, 2014-01-08 16:21

December heralds the end of the year with both reflections and celebrations.

In celebration of Alyth Choral Society’s 30th Anniversary, Composer in residence Julian Dawes has written a new piece for the occasion. This will be a world premiere of a new work, ‘Shirat Hayam’ (Song of the Sea), which is taken from verses from the Book of Exodus. We interviewed composer Julian Dawes and Conductor Michael Etherton. In remembrance of the Kindertransport, Suitcase 1938 will be seen and heard across train stations in the UK. Last month, we were joined by Executive Producer Jane Merkin to hear about the projects origins and its resonance today. This month Suitcase’s Musical Director and Klezmer in the Park Host, BBC’s Radio 3 Max Reinhardt, joins us in conversation to tell us more about the music within the performances. Plus lots of music from across the spectrum of Jewish Music World Wide.
