Ten years after making his professional debut in the world premiere of Philip Glass's Appomattox, Anthony Russell is now a vocalist, composer, and arranger specializing in Yiddish art and folk song, khazones, and Chasidic nigunim. Anthony's work in traditional Ashkenazi musical forms led to a musical exploration of his own roots through the research, arrangement, and performance of a hundred years of African-American traditional music. Anthony will discuss the triumphs and tribulations of being "the black guy who sings Yiddish."|
