Join Yale's Institute for Sacred Music and the Fortunoff Video Archive for an online performance of songs from the Archive's upcoming album Shray Hertzele Shray: Songs from Testimonies in the Fortunoff Video Archive, Volume Two.
The second volume in this ongoing ethnomusicological project contains widely diverse compositions in multiple languages drawn from songs sung by survivors in their videotestimonies. Collectively, these songs provide a multidimensional image of the lives of Holocaust survivors and the multiple identities they carried as Jews by faith and roots, and as European citizens.
Join us to hear this album performed live by the Zisl Slepovitch Ensemble & Sasha Lurje on January 27th at 7 PM EST.
Made possible by the generous support of the Institute for Sacred Music.
