Jewish Liturgical Music Conference and Shabbaton (2019)
Shabbaton: March 8-9
Conference: March 10-11
2019 in Chicago
We are honored to dedicate this conference and Shabbaton to the memory of the gifted Jewish musicologist Dr. Judith Kaplan Eisenstein (1909-1996), z”l.
The conference, with a mix of panel discussions, workshops, master classes, and other sessions intended to appeal both to professionals in the field and to interested non-professionals, will be held at two locations in Hyde Park.
It will begin on Sunday morning, at Swift Hall on the University of Chicago campus, 1025 East 58th Street, Chicago, IL 60637, running that day from 10:00 a.m. to about 6:15 p.m.
On Monday, we will be at Congregation Rodfei Zedek, 5200 South Hyde Park Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60615, beginning at 9:00 a.m. and ending at about 4:30 p.m.
We will also be offering a concert Sunday evening, at KAM Isaiah Israel, 1100 East Hyde Park Boulevard, Chicago, IL 60615, beginning at 8:00 p.m. Kosher box lunches (and snacks, but no other meals) will be provided on both days.
A Saturday evening musical program, on the north side of Chicago, will feature Joey Weisenberg, Mishkan Chicago musicians, and more.
