RVCC Virtual Benefit Concert To Feature Jewish Music

The Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) Department of Arts & Design will present its next selection in a virtual concert series launched to help defray the cost of private instructional lessons for RVCC music majors. The virtual concert, “Jewish Legacy XX: A Musical Project by Paul Cohen & Anna Keiserman,” will be streamed live from RVCC’s Edward Nash Theatre at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14.

The Jewish Legacy XX project will feature Jewish music from the 20th and 21st centuries, including the Nazi banned, so-called “degenerate” music of Jewish composer E. Schulhoff, who died in the concentration camps. The concert will include the music of the Jewish avant-garde movement created by A. Krein and Leo Ornstein at the beginning of the 20th century. This new musical genre blended traditional Jewish folk and liturgical music with western European and Russian romantic styles. The program will also include music by Israeli composer Paul Ben-Haim and New York City composer Steve Cohen will

A post-performance, online discussion with the musicians will follow the program. The concert is free; donations to support the RVCC Applied Music Fund are welcome.

The Jewish Legacy concert will be available for viewing after the initial performance date. For additional information, contact Anna Keiserman at [email protected].
