DREAMING IN YIDDISH LEGACY CONCERT AND AWARD
Celebrate the life and work of Yiddish singer/scholar, Adrienne Cooper. Stars of the klezmer and Yiddish world, including Frank London, Sarah Gordon, Michael Winograd and Joshua Dolgin present an evening of music from In Love and In Struggle: The Musical Legacy of the Jewish Labor Bund (YIVO, 1999), an album that featured Adrienne and reflects her passion for justice and Yiddish. This year's concert also awards Joshua Dolgin with the 2015 Adrienne Cooper Dreaming in Yiddish Award for his work as a singer, composer, hip-hop artist and puppeteer. The incredible Yiddish wordsmith, Michael Wex, will Emcee.
All proceeds go to the Adrienne Cooper Fund for Dreaming in Yiddish, which supports artists as they embark on the timeless, boundless, utterly unexpected adventure of working in Yiddish.
This year the event is hosted by the National Yiddish Theatre-Folksbiene at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, in partnership with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, keepers of the Adrienne Cooper Archives, GOH Productions, Yiddishkayt, and presented in association with Yiddish New York's inaugural year.
