Show 340 | Atlanta GA:
This week From the Top comes from the Bremen Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta, Georgia. In honor of that setting, the young performers celebrate Jewish themed music and the music of Jewish composers. We'll hear a teenage violinist perform Ravel's gorgeous Kaddish, a wonderful Atlanta-based youth choir sings a piece by a contemporary Jewish composer, and we'll meet a young guitar player who is one part Texan and one part Israeli.
