For more than 25 years, we have focused on preserving and disseminating the symbiotic history of American and American-Jewish music and culture. But part of our mission in preserving that legacy has been to secure the future. In the words of Mark Kligman, the Director of the Lowell Milken Fund for American Jewish Music at UCLA, "Jewish music needs to be vital. It needs to be active. It needs to be vibrant. And the way to do that is to create new Jewish music."
We agree. Which is why we’re happy to support the Max Helfman Institute for New Jewish Music and the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music in presenting the world premiere of “David’s Quilt,” an oratorio on the biblical story of David.
Composed by 15 composers of varied nationalities and backgrounds, "David's Quilt" will receive its world premiere in Los Angeles on November 5th.

Nicky Sohn is one of the 15 composers who worked on the project.

The concert will also serve as the opening event of a two-day conference that will bring together renowned experts, historians, composers and artists to discuss the past, present and future of "American Culture and the Jewish Experience in Music."
