Additional Notes:
In a typical classical music concert, an audience member sitting in a concert hall is kept at a distance from the musicians. In this innovative program, the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony closes the gap between audience and orchestra by introducing a new way to experience classical music, by seating the audience inside the orchestra. According to Maestro Bernard:Experience Beethoven's 5th Symphony as you never have. In addition to seeing the string section's bows fly, feeling the trumpets and timpani play and watching the conductor from your seat INSIDE THE ORCHESTRA, you will witness the camaraderie and electricity among and between the players and the conductor. This is a whole new perspective on concert going that for the first time brings the audience into the action.

Gilbert is a 5-person teen rock band who have been taking Westchester by storm, playing their funk-styled brand of rock music at venues large and small. Their mature musicianship combined with a goofy camaraderie make for a refreshing take on classic rock music, along with a few originals written by the band to keep it fresh. When not playing great music, they can be found taking long walks on the beach, slow dancing, and white-water spelunking.

Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University)
The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University
City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

A Grand Night for Singing
A Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical Revue
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo's final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. Here at R&H, our founding fathers probably never imagined 'Shall We Dance?' as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' But that's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,' a swingin' 'Honeybun' worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy 'Kansas City' which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.
