Celebrate two weddings and an anniversary with the Yiddish Philharmonic Chorus, a multigenerational thirty-five-voice all-Yiddish ensemble led by Binyumen Schaechter.  Join the whole mishpokhe—Jews all over the world and throughout history—with sung conversations and tales of demanding children, nubile youths, troubled couples, relieved parents, confused parents, revered grandparents, wistful old friends, and existential optimism. Schaechter’s novel musical arrangements include eight world premieres this season. But you don’t know Yiddish? Don’t worry! Song intros, English supertitles, and a keepsake booklet with full lyric translations will all be there to make you feel heymish. This encore concert is part of the chorus's 100th anniversary season.
