Will Soll presents a solo program called “A Yid in Amerika,” a musical and literary journey through American Jewish culture in the first half of the 20th century. Highlights of the itinerary include American klezmer music, Yiddish theater songs, poets of the sweatshop, songs of Tin Pan Alley, Hamlet’s “To Be or Not To Be” in Yiddish, a song by Eliza Greenblatt (Arlo Guthrie’s grandmother), the story “On America” by Sholem Aleichem, and more.

Will is generously donating proceeds from this concert to The Focal Point; we are grateful for his kindness as well as for his talents!
