The third episode of our “Spotlight Series” features Israeli-born composer Ofer Ben-Amots. Based on a 2018 oral history session and several events recorded during a residency at UCLA, the video chronicles his path to becoming one of today’s most prominent composers of music of Jewish experience. It’s a path filled with chance encounters and unexpected connections. Interview by Jeff Janeczko. Narrated by Grant Gottschall.
