OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More

Karl Jenkins is the most popular living composer on the planet, yet his work remains under-appreciated in America, perhaps, due to the lack of exposure. This annual concert at Carnegie Hall on MLK Jr. Day is always a wonderful opportunity to hear his latest work as well as one of his older pieces. These massive choral pieces are incredibly beautiful and very well sung and performed. It was a special tribute to a fine composer on his 70th birthday.
