Event Details

The Breman auditorium transforms one-night-only into a jazz café creating an intimate musical experience. Oran Etkin is described as a “woodwind maestro” by PRI's internationally syndicated show, Afropop Worldwide. He performed around the world with artists ranging from jazz guitarist Mike Stern to rapper Wyclef Jean. His album, Kelenia, fuses traditional Malian and Jewish music with modern jazz, creating what the Boston Globe dubbed a “hypnotic balance between straight-ahead jazz and world music.” The album was named “Best World Music Album of 2009” by the Independent Music Awards.

    The Righteous: A Play Reading & Discussion

    What would you do if you learned that your country was enacting a plan to annihilate an entire people? That is the gut-wrenching question faced by Eduard Schulte, a captain of German industry who was familiar with the Nazi High Command. Schulte’s identity was a closely guarded secret and his heroic act to attempt to stop the Holocaust was kept hidden for over forty years. The Righteous brings to light the remarkable and inspiring true story of Eduard Schulte.

  • April 29th, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

    The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
