Isn’t it Romantic – Chopin, Schumann, Berlioz, Wagner & Verdi with Jonathan Palevsky
The late 18th century established a fabulous set of rules and procedures for European music that every- one seemed happy with. It didn’t matter where you lived, what language you spoke, or what religion you believed in, composers wrote in the cosmopolitan Austro/German style. It was a time when music respected the proper manners and good taste of the aristocracy and the rising middle class. It was a grand old time until…the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, and the rise of that pesky middle class who were now demanding much more than they were entitled to! All of this social unrest was the beginning of what we now call Romanticism. Composers didn’t want to write about forms and structures, they wanted to express their own personal feelings. Come and explore the lives and music of composers like Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, Liszt, Berlioz, and Mendelssohn. In addition to exploring the music of this traumatized time we will also take a cursory look at its art and literature. Not for the timid!

History of Jewish Food with Harry Karp
Jewish people are often associated with food. For some, bagels, lox, blintzes, chicken soup, chopped liver and grivenes are practically a religion unto themselves. This class is NOT really about those foods. This class IS ABOUT, Jewish foods from all over, that really do bear a significance for something. It may be a country which our long exile carried us to, or the essence of Judaism itself. The food may be integral to an observance or a memorable delicacy enhancing a simcha (happy occasion). Although not a cooking class, we will have plenty of great ideas for you to try. We will visit both Ashkenazic and Sephardic menus. Sorry gang, bring your own lunch for the class. No chicken schmaltz sandwiches allowed!
