Museum Matters: February 2020
The Festival YOU Created!

We close almost every program with a request: “please fill out the survey near your seats.” You may find this surprising, but we actually read those surveys and try our best to use them to help inform future program development. This month we feature a festival inspired by your responses to two sets of programs.

The first set related to one of our most successful exhibits, 2015’s Paul Simon: Words and Music. While people cleary enjoyed learning about the life and career of Paul Simon, what really seemed to resonate was the story of Jewish involvement in the evolution and explosion of folk music. The second set was your overwhelmingly positive reactions to JMM Live in 2018, where we featured some of the amazing talent found in our community tbut not necessarily in our exhibit schedule. We tapped into both these sources of feedback to create this year's JMM Live: Jewish Folk Life Festival.
The series kicks off this Sunday, February 9th at 3:30 pm with JMM favorite Lori Şen. Lori first joined us in March 2019 for a Sephardic art song presentation and performance. This year Lori has expanded her performance and will be back with guitarist Jeremy Lyons and pianist Yin-Shan Su. Not only will the concert be an amazing dive into Sephardic culture, if you have never had a chance to hear live music in the Lloyd Street Synagogue it is something truly special to experience.
The series continues with an additional five programs through February and March, featuring concerts, lectures and a special papercutting workshop. Presenters will include a world-renowned klezmer musician, local favorites, a 2019 Grammy winner, and one our absolute favorite speakers of the past few years – Nora Guthrie, daughter of Woody Guthrie. Don’t forget, all our public programs are included with museum membership* so if you are not yet a member, now is the perfect time to join.

*And JMM Members, don’t forget to bring your “love note” postcard with you to select your free mystery gift when you visit the Museum this month!
