CELEBRATE FREEDOM: THE MEANING OF PASSOVER, GINDI AUDITORIUM, APRIL 10, 2016

The LAJS and the AJU Choir, under the direction of Dr. Noreen Green, joined forces with Dr. Dee and her gospel group, the BYTHAX Singers, and guest soloists, in an exhilarating concert celebrating music from the shared journey toward freedom of Jews and African-Americans. Raymond Goldstein’s The Pesach Cantata and Grammy Award-winning composer Lucas Richman’s gospel cantata In the Day When I Cried Out were performed, along with cantorial selections and Negro spirituals. At concert’s end, the audience rose in its fifth standing ovation of the evening and remained standing to join in singing an encore – the powerful spiritual Go Down, Moses – a perfect expression of the shared triumph of blacks and Jews over slavery.
