Join Bowling Green State University’s (BGSU) Student Organization in Music Research (SOMR) for a forum on music by Jewish composers. The event will begin at 1:00 pm with a conversation between Dr. Samuel Adler, composer, and Dr. Andrew Pelletier, hornist and BGSU professor, on liturgical and secular music, Jewish identity in music, and more. Following the talk will be a concert of music by Adler, Fromm, Har-zvi, Hemsi, Kasler, Mahler, Nin-Culmell, Rossi, Schalit, and more.

This event is part of a forum series hosted by SOMR that aims to present musical traditions which are not often heard in Northwest Ohio. The events are Music of the Jewish Diaspora (1/15), Music of Resistance (2/18), Ragtime by Women (3/5), and a Tabla Rhythm Masterclass (3/25).

The Forum on Music of the Jewish Diaspora was funded by a generous grant through the Toledo Jewish Community Foundation and is presented by SOMR, Hillel419, BGSU Praecepta, and the MidAmerican Center for Contemporary Music. SOMR’s forum series is presented by BGSU’s College of Musical Arts, School of Cultural and Critical Studies, and Office of Multicultural Affairs.
