Special Event preceding Lyra's April 7 Family Concert
Alma Vida Corazon:
Sephardic Music Takes the Stage
 

Rimon 
Artist Salon featuring the performers of the Sephardic ensemble Me La Amargates Tu.

SUNDAY, APRIL 7 | 1:00 P.M.

$10 | $5 Students
Ticket price includes admission to the Lyra Family Concert at 3:00 P.M. on the same day.

To order tickets in advance for this event click here or call Rimon at 952-381-3449.

Members of the Netherlands-based early music ensemble discuss the fascinating research behind their performances of Sephardic music with moderator Ezra Glinter, deputy art editor of The Jewish Daily Forward. Me la Amargates Tu, led by singer Esteban Manzano, combines the traditional texts and melodies of the Sephardic Jews with musical elements from the period in which the Sephardim lived in the Iberian Peninsula prior to their expulsion in 1492.

Rimon, an initiative of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation, promotes and enhances Jewish identity through arts and culture, supports arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and assists the greater Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts. Rimon also provides community grants to qualified local projects.

Tickets are available at www.lyrabaroque.org and at the door.
