Psalms Through the Eyes of Jewish Composers

JCC of Northern Virginia

Dates: Every Tuesday, May 03, 2011 - May 24, 2011
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Speaker: Cantor Sharon Steinberg

Cantor Sharon Steinberg is cantor at Beth El Congregation in Alexandria, Virginia.

Music expresses text on a non-verbal level that touches the soul directly.  In a lecture-recital-discussion format, Cantor Steinberg will direct the text study of a number of our most well-known and beloved psalms -- how and why we believe they became part of our biblical canon, what they meant at the time they were written and what they mean to us today -- via an examination of how they have been expressed musically by a variety of composers from different eras and cultures. 

Program is held at and co-sponsored by:
