The Bernard and Reva Broder Memorial Concert

One early spring, Basya Schechter and Avi Fox-Rosen met every Friday morning to compose settings for 20th-century Eastern European Yiddish poet Itzik Mangers collection of khumesh lider (Bible stories). Some weeks later when the world was in full bloom, they had set a full experience of these tragicomic retellings of Bible stories to original music. Characters we know and love like Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah are plucked out of Canaan and set in interwar Eastern Europe. Hasidim, Turks, Egyptians, and Canaanites collide in the mythical geography Manger creates. The music weaves together a singer-songwriter aesthetic with theater, pop, and world music influences, arranged with lush vocal harmonies throughout. Basya and Avi are joined by Yoshie Fruchter on bass, guitar, and voice; Eleonore Weill on flutes and voice; Shai Wetzer on percussion; and Kaia Berman Peters on accordion, voice, and electronics.
