Let the Music Play
Congregation Beth Shalom
Napa, CA
Share this event:

Music is ubiquitous in our world, and it was no different in antiquity. Although we can no longer hear the melodious voices and instrumental sounds of the past, artifacts and texts communicate their importance. The lecture Let the Music Play briefly explores music and musical instruments in ancient Israel with focus on the Iron Age, a time known to many as the biblical period. The types of instruments played in Israelite and surrounding Near Eastern cultures, where music was performed, who played it, and thoughts regarding how the music may have sound-ed, are some of the areas that will be discussed.

Theodore W. Burgh (Teddy) is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. In addition to research and writing, Teddy enjoys teaching classes on various topics in religion, music, and archaeology. He has been excavating at archaeological sites in Jordan and Sicily since 1996. Teddy writes, performs, and teaches music. One of his special interests is archaeomusicology, also known as music archaeology. His book Listening to the Artifacts: Music Culture in Ancient Palestine received the Klaus Wachsmann Award from the Society of Ethnomusicology. His most recent work is titled, Is God Funky or What? Black Biblical Culture and Contemporary Popular Music.
