A Patchwork of Cultures
The Los Angeles Jewish Symphony (LAJS), in collaboration with Wilshire Boulevard Temple, will present a concert as part of their acclaimed education program, A Patchwork of Cultures: Exploring the Sephardic-Latino Connection, at Wilshire Boulevard Temple on Sunday, March 19th at 4PM. Thanks to a generous grant from the California Arts Council, the Symphony is excited to present a free, 90-minute concert that shines a spotlight on the shared cultural links between Sephardic Jews and the people of Latin America. The program will also highlight Mizrahi/Persian music in celebration of Nowruz, the Persian New Year. The concert will be presented in the historic sanctuary of Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a gorgeous cultural monument that is home to the oldest Jewish congregation in Los Angeles. The mixing of cultures will be represented in the concert’s guest artists, Argentinian-born Rabbi Cantor Marcelo Gindlin and versatile Jewish, Persian-American musician Chloe Pourmorady. Spiritual leader of the Malibu Jewish Center & Synagogue and a longtime friend and collaborator of the LAJS, Rabbi Cantor Gindlin will be featured on the Sephardic and Latino sections of the program. Pourmorady will join the LAJS in performing some of her original music based on the Mizrachi-Persian Jewish music tradition. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for the event!
