Bible Women: The Concert – Voices of Our Mothers

Bible Women - Walking in Desert with Camels
contemporary, lectures-symposia, world-music
Schoenberg Hall

In this inaugural musical collaboration with the Academy for Jewish Religion, CA, esteemed alumni of both UCLA and AJRCA will share songs which give voice to the women of the Bible, telling classic stories through new lenses. Perspective is everything. While Bible stories have offered valuable life lessons through the millennia, the viewpoint is singularly focused: that of men.  What will Sarah, Miriam, Deborah, Ruth, Esther and Lilith say about their own lives? You’ll never hear these stories the same way again. The lyrics and music of this show were created by Tony-nominated composer Elizabeth Swados.

Join us for a pre-performance talk at 3:00 pm with scholar and Rabbi, Ruth Sohn, of Hebrew Union College, Cantor Kerith Spencer-Shapiro, of University Synagogue, and Dr. Jonathan Friedmann, of the Academy for Jewish Religion. They will explore the different ways in which women are depicted in the Bible, creating a fascinating and important context for the 4 pm concert.

This event is made possible by the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. Bible Women is co-sponsored by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music,  the Department of Ethnomusicology and the UCLA Center for the Study of Religion.

Register in advance for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
