A Tapestry of Time – A Symphony of Sound

Sharim v’Sharot and its Music Director, Dr. Elayne Robinson Grossman, present the 8th Annual Mercer County Jewish Choral Festival. "A Tapestry of Time – A Symphony of Sound" will feature singers from various choruses sharing a wide range of Jewish sound spanning many ages and countries.

Sharim v’Sharot is honored to have as this year’s Scholar-in-Residence, Roosevelt composer, Dr. Mark Zuckerman, who will discuss his involvement with Yiddish choral arrangements and the challenges he has experienced when communicating, through music, facets of Jewish spirit, culture and experience. All of the singers will sing his arrangement of Mikhl Gelbart’s composition “Ikh Bin A Kleyner Dreydl,” (“I Am A Little Dreydl”) and Itsik Manger and S. Beresovsky’s “Dolye Mayne, Dolye” at the end of the concert. Dr. Zuckerman, whose arrangements have been performed on four continents, has been called the foremost choral arranger of Yiddish song alive today. A composer for vocalists, chamber groups and orchestras, he earned his Ph.D. in composition from Princeton University, where he served on the music faculty and taught courses ranging from jazz to computer music.

Admission is free; a suggested donation of $10 to Sharim v’Sharot is requested.
