Through a generous grant from the BJH Foundation for Seniors Services, CAN-NC will wrap up this year's collaboration with Jewish Family Services, Beth David Synagogue and Temple Emanuel on May 16th with a unique music program. Vocalist Lorena Guillen, conductor of the Triangle Jewish Chorale, joins guitarist Nick Rich, bassist Steve Landis, and percussionist Erik Schmidt for a program of Sephardic music. The Sephardim are a Jewish population centered on the Iberian Peninsula. They represent a unique culture combining traditions from ancient Judaism and Western Europe. Their Ladino language, a variant of Old Spanish, has been preserved in a rich repertoire of folk songs and ballads. Dr. Guillen and her band will present several Sephardic songs along with a discussion of their historical and cultural contexts.
