JEWISH CLASSICAL MUSICIANS
The Jewish Studies Area of the Popular Culture Association is organizing at
least one panel on Jewish Classical Musicians for the 2007 conference of the
ACA/PCA in Boston, Massachusetts, April 4-7, 2007.
Jewish musicians have influenced classical music almost since its inception.
More modern composers include such masters as Felix Mendelssohn, Gustav
Mahler, Jacques Offenbach, Leonard Bernstein, and Aaron Copland. Modern classical
performers include Arthur Rubenstein, Isaac Stern, Jascha Heifetz, Vladimir
Horowitz, Wladyslaw Szpilman (The Pianist), Beverly Sills (nee Belle Miriam
Silverman), and Roberta Peters (nee Roberta Peterman). Composer and performer
George Gershwin (Jazz and Classical artist) is also included in this category.
Presentation proposals should examine the music of these and other Jewish
classical musicians and how they have changed, influenced, or in other ways are a
part of classical music culture.
Proposals should be approximately 250 words in length and must include your
mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
All proposals should be emailed to both the Area Chair and Associate Area
Chair. DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS. Please copy-and-paste your proposal into the
Area Chair: Daniel Walden -- dxw8_at_psu.edu
Associate Area Chair: Barbara Silliman -- JewishStudiesPCA_at_aol.com
