With Jewlia Eisenberg

Set your mind toward the new year as we sing high holiday piyutim (devotional songs). The class will focus on piyutim based on medieval Spanish poetry, which is often erotic and gender non-compliant. While the sessions will include time with the texts, most of the time will be spent singing together (instrumentalists also welcome). This class is for all levels.

Dates: Thursdays, September 15, 22, 29

Jewlia Eisenberg is a vocalist, recording artist, ethnomusicologist and founder of the nerdy-sexy-commie-girly band Charming Hostess.
