This is the “All you ever wanted to know about Jewish music but were afraid to ask” session.

Musicians, musicologists and everyone in between are invited to celebrate the marking of one year of Promiscuous Presentations (52 of them, yay!), with an open forum Q & A wherein we pool our knowledge into one diffuse discussion. Lecture begone – let’s cut straight to the chase! No holds barred, all questions welcome, no matter how silly or salacious.

For instance… Why does my dog bark when it hears freygish? How do you get rid of adrenaline buzz so you can sleep after a gig? How do I get my bandmates to memorize their parts so we can be off book? Do the Sephardim have an instrumental tradition? If all of us in my group are at different levels, should we play only easy pieces? Did Beregovsky have a secret lover? Is there a synonym for synonym? All are invited despite Zoom fatigue.
