    It was a certain moment in the BT movement. The moment passed. But now, as more musicians are comfortable with their own expressions and experiences, we are hearing more exciting and deep music.
    Thank you for sharing this important, although obscure moment, in our collective history.

    I believe Scneer Zalman Stern from Hadar Hatorah deserves credit as well!!

    Me, too!

    It was a very ambitious venture and poorly attended.
    An event ahead of the times, when Jewish musicals were uncommon.

    Scneer Zalman Stern actually arranged, directed and produced the event, and spent 6 yrs of his life paying for it!

    Besides an amazing musician, Reb Dovid is a phenomenal artist, and an expert Soifer.

    Check him out on YouTube.

    As far as I remember it was Pesach 1973, it was two weeks after I got married so that’s how I remember the time. I think there was another in San Francisco a year later. Langer would know more details.

    Zalman you most definitely should do a big symphony again!
    There’s so much rich material in Sefer Niggunim and if there’s anyone I can trust to present it right yet classy and tasteful it’s you.

    Maybe Mr. Farkas or other wealthy lovers of Chabad can get behind this as a public benefit.

    I’ll be there together with my extended family (my cousin is a secular songwriter and what better way to draw him closer?).

    from the families of the people involved that date is not correct.

    Does anyone have a better tape of this concert or is there an official recording with good sound that could be sold as a CD to raize money for HadarHaTorah?

    What a monumental task taken on with such passion. I wish we could replicate the passion again.
    It is sad however that the community then and perhaps now as well did not appreciate the project enough to purchase tickets and make it a financial success.
    For creativity to flourish in our community we need to be willing to support it, with attendance and with our wallet.

    – We can support the Chassidic arts!
