NEW VIDEO SERIES
Welcome to the fourth video in our Great Performances Series.
This week’s #NCGreatPerformances video is here and it’s a really special one. Our 2017 program Sacred Love: Songs of the Sephardim was lovingly curated and guest directed by Nell Snaidas and featured an amazing group of internationally-renowned musicians from Chicagoland and across the USA.
“Shachar Avakeshcha” – traditional Sephardic, Matthew Dean, tenor solo
“Nuba al-Maya B’tayhi” – traditional Arab-Andalusian, Ronnie Malley, oud solo
“Lecha Dodi” (tune: Rey de Francia) traditional Sephardic, Daphna Mor, soprano solo
A big thank you to our amazing artists!
