Join HACCM for a special performance, “A Concert Celebrating the Jews of Greece“, performed by the Greek Chamber Music Project (GCMP). The GCMP presents a powerful program celebrating the Sephardic Jews of Greece and the broader Mediterranean. The Sephardim have a long history in Greece, with musical traditions that are woven deep into the fabric of the region. Led by Ellie Falaris Ganelin on flute, the GCMP is pleased to collaborate with Sarah Aroeste who sings in Ladino, the Judeo-Spanish language of the Sephardim. She keeps the language alive with unique interpretations of traditional Sephardic songs and her original compositions sung in Ladino. She is joined by her longtime pianist and producer Shai Bachar. Together, the trio offers a multimedia program of old and new songs infused with Greek and Sephardic influences. Through stories and song, this concert in celebration of the Jews of Greece is meant to educate, entertain and inspire.
