A Goyishe Christmas to You!
New York Festival of Song (NYFOS) presents its annual holiday tradition, A Goyishe Christmas to You! on Monday, December 6, 2021 at 7:00pm at Merkin Hall’s Upper Lobby at the Kaufman Music Center.
The program features favorite Yuletide tunes by Jewish composers, performed with a twist, sung by mezzo-soprano Donna Breitzer, Cantor Joshua Breitzer, baritone Joshua Jeremiah, mezzo-soprano Rebecca Jo Loeb, tenor Alex Mansoori, and soprano Lauren Worsham. Steven Blier joins as pianist and host together with clarinetist Alan R. Kay.
An instant classic, the program consists of Yuletide songs, from the wickedly funny to the meltingly beautiful, entirely written by Jewish composers. From such tunes as Frank Loesser’s “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to Jay Livingston and Ray Evans’ “Silver Bells,” the popular seasonal songbook is packed with countless contributions by Jewish songwriters on behalf of their gentile counterparts.
Single tickets priced at $40 are on-sale at http://nyfos.org/21-22season.
Venue: Merkin Concert Hall
129 W. 67th St.
