Dr. Eric Werner (1901-1988): Building Sacred Bridges
Conference and Concert in Memory of Dr. Eric Werner
Dr. Eric Werner was an eminent scholar, teacher, and composer who opened new doors in Jewish musicology. As one of the founders of HUC-JIR's School of Sacred Music, he passionately sought to establish a vibrant future for sacred music. He trained generations of cantors and challenged scholarship by asserting the existence of a bridge between synagogue and church music. The keynote address will discuss the life and legacy of Eric Werner. Subsequent talks will explore the interconnection of Jewish, Christian, and Islamic sacred music. The conference will conclude with a concert entitled "A Voice Still Heard."
