Online Concert: Zisl Slepovitch Ensemble & Sasha Lurje Perform Songs From Testimonies, Volume 2
Join the Yale Institute for Sacred Music, the Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale, and the Fortunoff Video Archive for an online performance of songs from the Archive's upcoming album Shray Hertsele Shray: Songs from Testimonies in the Fortunoff Video Archive, Volume Two.
The second volume in this ongoing ethnomusicological project contains widely diverse compositions in multiple languages drawn from songs sung by survivors in their videotestimonies. Collectively, these songs provide a multidimensional image of the lives of Holocaust survivors and the multiple identities they carried as Jews by faith and roots, and as European citizens.
Join us to hear this album performed live by the Zisl Slepovitch Ensemble & Sasha Lurje on January 27th at 7 PM EST:
Made possible by the generous support of the Yale Institute for Sacred Music and Joseph Slifka Center for Jewish Life at Yale.
