Included among them were Dr. Leon Botstein, president of Bard College; Bret Werb of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum; and Dr. Frank Mecklenburg from the Leo Baeck Institute, as well as prominent WQXR radio hosts Elliott Forrest and Fred Child of American Public Media, among 20 other scholars and music lovers.
