New Series: Jewish Composers of the American Musical

The Colorado Hebrew Chorale and its Women’s Choir, Kol Nashim are proud to feature Miryam Raizen who will present a fascinating new series: “From Tin Pan Alley Cats to the Great White Way – Jewish Composers of the American Musical.” The series will begin on Sunday, January 3 at 7:30 pm on Zoom and will continue monthly through June.

Jewish composers have had a profound impact on Broadway since the earliest days of the American Musical. In this series we will examine the earliest roots of musical theatre and the composers of Tin Pan Alley, and the continued importance Jewish composers have had on the art form, from the days of “Show Boat” all the way to “Come From Away.”
