lectures-symposia
Zoom

4PM Pacific Time Zone / 7PM Eastern Time Zone

Departing from a Lubavitcher niggun, this talk by Professor Tina Frühauf walks you to four corners of New York City and the Jewish musical cultures—past and present—of distinctive neighborhoods, from Lincoln Center and Broadway to Forest Hills in Queens, from Harlem in the north down to the Lower Eastside in the south of Manhattan.

More about your tour guide:

Tina Frühauf is Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia University and serves on the doctoral faculty of the Graduate Center, CUNY, in New York. An active scholar and writer, the study of Jewish music in modernity has been Dr. Frühauf's primary research focus for two decades, culminating in monographs from Orgel und Orgelmusik in deutsch-jüdischer Kultur (Georg Olms Verlag, 2005) to Transcending Dystopia: Music, Mobility, and the Jewish Community in Germany, 1945-1989 (Oxford University Press, 2021).
