Chai on Music jpeg"Chai on Music" to Benefit the Historical Society

 

 (Hurleyville, NY)  As Summer in the Catskills draws to a close, what better way to spend Sunday of Labor Day weekend than by embracing some Borscht Belt History?  Or, at least, some wonderful music, benefiting the Sullivan County Historical Society, that is!  "Chai on Music" is a whirlwind tour of Jewish Music - from its roots in prayer to lullabies and folk songs.  From the Yiddish Theatre to the Broadway stage,  Songs in English, Yiddish and Hebrew.  Songs of love and humor, of loss and resiliency. The trio of performers, Richard ChigerandLori Schneideron vocals and Leon Hilfsteinon keyboards, between them have a wealth of performance experience, spanning many decades.  The three joined forces as "Chai on Music" in 2013 and since haveperformed at venues in Orange and Rockland counties and New York City and earlier this summer, had their enthusiastically received, first performance in Sullivan County - where all three make their homes!   "Chai on Music" will be performing a benefit concert for the Sullivan County Historical Society on Sunday, August 31 at 2:00 pm at the Sullivan County Museum, 265 Main Street in Hurleyville.
