This exciting musical program explores the oversized role of Jewish composers and lyricists in the development of the modern American musical and the creation of its timeless songs.
Or Olam’s Cantor Shiree Kidron, joined by noted guest performer Omer Shaish and accompanist Oran Eldor, bring us an assortment of familiar classics and less-known gems from Jewish Broadway in a program featuring songs by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, Leonard Bernstein, Harold Arlen, Sheldon Harnick and others.
Concert lasts approximately 90 minutes. Reception afterwards in the Social Hall. Advanced-purchase tickets through December 9th $10.00 for Or Olam members and $18.00 for non-members. $20.00 at the door for everyone.
