EXILE explores the influences of Italian, German, and eastern European music and Jewish culture, highlighting Jewish musicians, the non-Jewish composers they influenced, and composers who inspired innovations in Jewish composition. Featuring composers such as Rossi, Vierdanck, Monteverdi, and others, this program highlights the mutual influences of the early modern European Jewish experience, breaking down preconceptions of Jewish music and culture and exploring the implications of diaspora on Jewish artistic legacy. This concert is largely sponsored by a generous grant from the Jewish Heritage Fund in Louisville, KY.
