Our last post from Cantor Joshua Breitzer! Remember to join Josh and NYFOS for A Goyishe Christmas to You! on December 14 at HENRY’s Restaurant. And up next week, one of NYFOS’s favorite librettists, Mark Campbell, will DJ the Song of the Day for you — stay tuned!
from Joshua Breitzer:
In the last decades Israel has become a center of intrepid musical expression, producing some of the world’s most talented artists. Leah Goldberg was one of its first national poets and Yehezkel Braun set the compositional standard for all who followed him. As we end this week focusing on Jewish song, marvel with me at the immediacy and poignancy of these songs performed at his memorial service last January.
