CUUC Music: Sun Dec 13

In honor of Chanukah, Sunday morning’s musical selections consist of works by composers of Jewish descent. The Prelude opens with two of Felix Mendelssohn’s elegant Songs without Words and continues with two jazz-inflected miniatures by Brooklyn native Aaron Copland. Leonard Bernstein provides the Opening Music in the form of a charming birthday commemoration of his wife, actress Felicia Montealegre. George Gershwin’s raucous, Blues-inspired Preludes furnish the morning’s Offertory and musical Interlude. Read on for details.
