Description

Following last year’s triumph honoring Leonard Bernstein, Barak returns with a new multimedia lecture and songfest celebrating Irving Berlin’s influence on American music. The evening highlights his life, his Jewish roots and his particular appeal to the “melting pot” of America. Barak closes the evening with a sing-along finale of Berlin’s most beloved songs!

Featuring Jimmy Roberts on piano.
