The Emma Lazarus powerful 1883 sonnet, "The New Colossus," inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty,
has served as a beacon of welcome and hope to generations of immigrants who came to our shores seeking refuge and freedom.
This Sunday, we can revel in the chamber music, songs, liturgical settings, choral music and works for Yiddish theater created by immigrant composers, Bela Bartok, Ernest Bloch, Kurt Weill, Sholom Secunda, Irving Berlin, Miguel del Aguila, and Regina Spektor, performed by Elana Arian, violin/vocalist, Ivan Barenboim, clarinet, Adria Benjamin, viola, Tomoko Fujita, cello, Julia Ostrov, vocalist, John Riddle, tenor, Beth Robin, piano, Francisco Roldan, guitarist, Joyce Rosenzweig, pianist/conductor, Amanda Seigel, soprano, Sebu Sirinian, violin, Lisa Tipton, violin, Sally Wilfert, vocalist, Cantor Steve Zeidenberg, singer, and the CBST Community Chorus.
Today, as immigration and open borders are in danger, come for an afternoon of glorious music and great performances
that remind us how important it is to continue working together to "Open the gates of righteousness!"
