Yiddish Choir & Middle Eastern Music Ensemble
Aug 6 Sun 5 p.m. @OMA
njoy the joint final presentation of these two workshops, which this year were led by a pair of charismatic and much-loved instructors.
Polina Shepherd is a lively, vivacious singer and choir leader with a knack for quickly transforming a group of singers into a musical community; Baghdad-born Yair Dalal, who specializes in Arab and Judeo-Arab music, led this year’s Middle East Music Ensemble, whose performances also reach out to refugees. Put the two together, and you can expect a unique, mesmerizing encounter of Yiddish, Israeli and Arabic music.
