Soul to Soul Concert – Saturday, February 17
Saturday, February 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST
In honor of African-American History Month
we proudly present for the first time in Pittsburgh the
NATIONAL YIDDISH THEATRE FOLKSBIENE (NYTF)
During the darkest days, we sing. When light shines upon us, we sing. While seeking justice and answers, we sing. This musical tradition is one shared among African Americans and Jews for centuries.
SOUL TO SOUL, produced by NYTF, is a multi-media concert exploring the narrative arc of two peoples and their struggles to find freedom in this country. Melding the musical traditions of two communities – from spirituals, jazz, Civil Rights Era anthems to Yiddish traditional and theatre songs from the Great American Songbook – this show celebrates their respective cultures and commonality with poignancy and passion and is sung by brilliant performers with careers spanning from Broadway to Pulpit.
Stay for a post-show talkback with the cast and creative team and a historical presentation about Jewish and Black musicians in the Hill District.
