"Curating Cantorial Education: Breadth and Depth in Jewish Musical Life" with Cantor Richard Cohn

Main Content

Join us for "Curating Cantorial Education: Breadth and Depth in Jewish Musical Life" with Cantor Richard Cohn, Director, Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music, HUC-JIR/New York on Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 12:00 pm ET.

The profusion of Jewish musical creativity over the last two centuries has only accelerated in our time, and the antecedents of that abundance date to antiquity.  What music do cantors learn while studying at HUC-JIR, and how do those repertoires influence their leadership of contemporary communities?  We’ll frame the foundational elements and explore emerging musical forms, while viewing and listening to selected examples in representative styles.
