With lush, beautiful melodies and blinding colors Borodin's thrilling Polovtsian Dances from the end of Act II of the opera Prince Igor, will transfix and delight. Well-known piano virtuoso Jeffrey Biegel will perform Saint Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2-a captivating work that begins with a dramatic fantasia in the style of Bach, and ends with a lively, unexpected tarantella. The program concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade which vividly portrays the waves that rock Sinbad's Ship, the mystery and power of the Kalendar Prince, the love of the young prince and princess growing into a gentle dance, and ...without warning ... you are thrown head-first into a bustling bazaar in Baghdad. Throughout all of this, the gentle voice of our story teller Scheherazade is woven across each episode.Presenter: Park Avenue Chamber Symphony

"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
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.

1st Irish Festival: From Stage to Screen: Kings (2007)
 
A film that preserves all the intensity and intimacy of a theatrical production. This is a dark, brooding work, a journey with many rewards. With strong, sophisticated performances and a taut script, this an achingly sad and beautiful story that is timeless in it's relevance. As Gaeilge with English subtitles.

Additional Notes:
Six young Irish working men emigrate to London in the early 1970s. Like so many of their generation, they spend their lives in manual labor jobs; digging ditches or construction work. They intended to stay only a little while, make some money and return home as successful men, but that day never seemed to arrive. Now, twenty-something years later, still in London, five of them gather in the side room of a pub in an informal wake for one of them who has died. All are in their late-40s or early-50s. All but one (who had split off from the group years earlier and established a successful construction company of his own) are broken from lives of hard work and harder drinking.
