Bor'chu to Beethoven: The Story of a Symphony



Join us for a very special program about the creation of a symphony based upon High Holy Day motifs.  Dr. Steven P. Rothstein will share his process of composing the Judaic Symphony, which was commissioned by the Judaic Sacred Music Foundation. Dr. Rothstein will share audio and video recordings as part of the presentation.  Dr. Rothstein earned a Ph.D in Classical Music from UCLA.

The Symphony is a symphonic work in four movements.  Each movement contains original musical material based on the traditional Jewish New Year services (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) of the 18th, 19th, and 20th century Eastern European synagogues. The primary goal in creating this symphony was to capture that deep, emotional, and creative aura that imbued the heightened sense of personal relationship between the Jewish people and God. 

In 2014 Professor Robert H. Freilich founded the Judaic Sacred Music Foundation and merged his love of Jewish High Holy Day music and classical music.  Together Dr. Rothstein and Dr. Freilich engaged in in-depth research identifying synagogue -  temple music and motifs of the 18th-20th centuries.
