onstage/offstage: Jewish Kaleidoscope

September 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

NSCMF’s veteran artists pianist William Wolfram, cellist Mark Kosower, and clarinetist Ilya Shterenberg, join our directors Vadim Gluzman and Angela Yoffe in exploring the many dimensions of Jewish and Israeli music in a concert supported by the Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest, culminating in a world premiere of a new work by the celebrated Israeli composer Avner Dorman.

The onstage/offstage series brings the magic of the annual summer festival to downtown Chicago during the 2O2O-21 season. Now that guidelines are permitting in-person concerts we are so pleased to welcome you back inside the concert hall. Each event is presented live-in-person in the lovely recital hall at PianoForte Chicago Chicago’s premier downtown piano destination – and will livestream to homes around the world at the same time, your choice!
