New York, NY
Steve Scholle plays shakuhachi in a Kol Nidre Concert
Museum of Jewish Heritage
1 Battery Place, New York, NY
The Kol Nidre is the sacred musical prayer that opens the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur. This concert is a compilation of performances, film clips and oral history about the music of Kol Nidre. I will be performing a piece I composed for the CD "A Prayer for the Missing: an offering for the victims of 9-11". I composed the piece and perform it on the shakuhachi, the traditional Japanese bamboo flute.
