Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

April 24, 2012

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice,
*not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Subject: Yiddish performance Sunday with Schaechter & JPPC, in NYC

You are invited this Sunday, April 29, 2012, 3:00 PM, to come hear the 
JPPC / Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus, with Conductor Binyumen 
Schaechter, perform in New York City.

Concert:  6th Street Sundays presents "A Cappella Choral Blast"

When:  This Sunday, April 29, 2012, 3:00 PM

Where:  Sixth Street Community Synagogue, 325 East 6th St. (betw. 1st and 
2nd Ave.), New York City, 10003

Who:  The Jewish People's Philharmonic Chorus / JPPC with Conductor 
Binyumen Schaechter, and two other (non-Yiddish) choruses: Cantigas 
Women's Choir, and the NYU Madrigal Singers.  Each chorus has a 30-minute 
a cappella set.  The JPPC is the 2nd chorus to perform, ending the first 

Soloist:  Temma Schaechter of 'Di Shekhter-tekhter'

Tickets:  $15, which includes a free beverage; $10 for kids aged 5-12. 
Cash only, at the door.  There will be an intermission.

What if you can't make it this Sunday?   Then you can come to the JPPC's 
big concert on Sunday, June 3rd, 4:30 PM at Symphony Space.

What if you already have tickets to the JPPC's June 3rd concert?  Why 
should you come this Sunday if you'll hear the same music in June?  Of the 
8 numbers we're performing this Sunday, only 4 will be in the June 
concert.  The latter concert will not only have 8-9 *additional* Yiddish 
numbers, but a Yiddish operetta, as well.  (English translations always 
provided.)  So not only will you hear a relatively small amount of the 
June concert this Sunday - you'll also get to hear four terrific numbers 
that *won't* be in the June concert.  And it's not every day that one gets 
to hear the JPPC perform an a cappella set...

Questions:  information at thejppc.org

We hope to see you on Sunday.
