Michael Lavine Presents BROADWAY SONGS ABOUT THE JEWISH EXPERIENCE YOU MAY NOT KNOW
Michael Lavine (Broadway vocal coach, performer music director, and sheet music guru) is presenting a special Webinar Zoominar show : Broadway Songs about the Jewish Experience You May Not Know on May 19, 2020 04:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada). This is a benefit for Moment, the magazine Elie Wiesel founded around 50 years ago.
When thinking of Jewish music on Broadway, Fiddler on the Roof is usually the first show that comes to mind. But there are so many Jewish themed songs that you may not be familiar with from shows like the Education of Hyman Kaplan, The Zulu and The Zayda and The Last Five Years. Join Michael Lavine as he plays piano and introduces us to great Jewish Broadway songs. In addition to singing and playing there will be some fun recordings by Broadway performers, including a lot of cuts from Michael's upcoming recording of Jewish theatre music, called HOLD ON TO YOUR YARMULKES!
