LET THERE BE LIGHT: CONCERTS OF STORY AND SONG
Join Hazzan Steve Klaper and Mary Gilhuly in an entertaining concert of songs and stories, new and old, to shine a light
upon us all as fellow travelers, and to uncover the holy sparks of light glinting off everyone and everything.
STORIES ‘ROUND THE FIRE • STORIES ‘ROUND THE MENORAH • STORIES ‘ROUND THE MANGER
Incorporating storytelling into your holiday experience engages ALL AGES in an ancient, peaceful practice. Mary will select just the right stories to share with your group on subjects appropriate to the time of year, messages of peace, tales of “holy fools” or from an endless collection of memorable tales from around the world. With musical accompaniment.
THE ADVENTURES OF SENDER THE KLOPPER. In the old country, the klopper went house-to-house through the Jewish shtetl (village), knocking on shutters and calling people to prayer. In this unique one-man show, Hazzan Steve Klaper pays homage to his family’s original vocation as he assumes the role of 18th century troubadour and raconteur, Sender the Klopper. Sender will take you on an unforgettable journey, where old and new worlds meet like long-lost friends. People of all faiths will be affected by this very personal narrative.
THE MELODY TELLS THE STORY: 6,000 YEARS OF SACRED MUSIC IN 60 MINUTES! From the sound of the ram’s horn to Miriam’s tambourine, Levites in the Temple, and Elijah singing the blues. From Sephardi maqam and Ashkenazi davening to Torah cantillation, Chasidic nigun, the golden age of European cantors, klezmer, Shlomo Carlebach, Debbie Friedman and Jewish reggae — Hazzan Steve takes you on a one hour overview of Jewish musical history in a dizzying presentation of song and chant. Sit back and hold onto your hats!
