AMICI MUSIC PRESENTS- Three different Jewish-inspired programs in September Mozart Zoom course in Sept.; Beethoven Zoom in October
Dear AmiciMusic friends,
Hope you can join us next week for a couple of different Jewish-themed concerts to celebrate the high holidays. The third Jewish program will be coming up on September 20 (not Sept. 19 as written in last e-blast) and I will send out a link to that one soon.
First up on Wednesday, September 9 at 7:30pm is “JEWISH JOYS and SORROWS,” which is hosted by Baltimore’s Beth El Congregation as part of their First Wednesday series. Dr. Eyal Bor, clarinet, will join Emmanuel Borowsky, violin; Darragh Fitzgerald, violin; Radhames Santos, viola; Frances Borowsky, cello; and Daniel Weiser, piano on an exciting program featuring music by Bloch, Achron, Kogan, Krein, and Prokofiev. That program will go live on September 9 at 7:30 on the Beth El Facebook page at: facebook.com/bethelbalto
On Saturday, September 12 at 8:00pm, we will perform “MUSIC of REFLECTION” as a special pre-S’lichot concert at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, made possible with a generous donation from the Peggy and Yale Gordon Foundation. Cantor Ben Ellerin will join the Borowsky siblings and myself on this program that will include reflective and meditative music by Ravel, Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn, Schoenfield, and more. Stay tuned right after the concert for a musical Service on which we will also play. This concert and the Service after will go live on September 12 at 8:00 on the Baltimore Hebrew Livestream page at: https://venue.streamspot.com/
Finally, on Sunday, September 20 at 7:00, the Borowskys and I will perform a program entitled “The JEWISH SPIRIT.” This concert will feature one of the most powerful works on the Jewish experience ever composed, the Shostakovich Trio written during World War II. This piece is emotionally draining, but filled with incredible depth and poignancy. We will also perform works by David Popper and Meira Warshauer. This program will be available as an AmiciMusic Livestream. Stay tuned for a link to that concert.
For those interested in my composer Zoom courses, I will be repeating the Mozart Zoom course I did back in the spring on the next four Wednesdays in September at 11:00, starting on Sept. 9. To sign up, please visit: https://amicimusic.org/
Then, on all the Wednesdays in October at 1:00, I will follow that up with a Beethoven Zoom course to celebrate the 250th birthday of that great composer. Hope to have some guest musicians for both courses. Here is the link to sign up for the Beethoven course: https://amicimusic.org/
For more info on any of the above programs or Zoom courses, please do visit: https://amicimusic.org/. We are still offering our concerts as “Pay What You Can” for now because of the great generosity of our listeners during the past several months. If you can help support our livestream music concerts for the coming months until we can resume our intimate in-person concerts, we are certainly grateful for any contributions.

We hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and we look forward to seeing you all at many concerts and classes this fall. We are planning some more wonderful programs! Please stay safe and sane! Thanks for your continued support for our AmiciMusic programs.
