    The Western canon of art song—so identified with Schubert, Schumann,and Brahms—has a legitimate secular Jewish counterpart in both Yiddish and Hebrew art songs of the 20th century. Lazar Weiner is justifiably considered the supreme exemplar and advocate of this genre. Having composed over one hundred art songs, he elevated that medium to unprecedented artistic sophistication. With a group of singers assembled
    by his son, the Pulitzer Prize winning composer, Yehudi Wyner, this will
    be an important and unforgettable afternoon of eloquent and beautiful
    Yiddish music in a unique historic setting. Featured vocalists include
    Ilana Davidson, Lynn Torgove, Cantor Joshua Breitzer, and David Kravitz. Special appearance by Cantor Robert Abelson who was a collaborator and singer with Weiner.
