Three of LA’s most acclaimed musicians will share their personal stories at Bravissima! Jewish Women in Music at The Braid, home of Jewish Women’s Theatre (JWT) in Santa Monica on April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon.

The distinguished artists who comprise the panel are: flutist Susan Greenberg, composer Miriam Cutler and Rachael Worby, Artistic Director of MUSE/IQUE, LA’s musical adventure series.  Live music and a dance performance by Lillian Rose Barbeito will begin the morning’s presentation.

Screenwriter Arlene Sarner, who will moderate the panel, explains, “Music enriches all of our lives. The Jewish legacy in music is immeasurable.  There would be no Broadway, few film or classical scores, and very little rock and roll without Jewish contributions.  But history shows that much of this is due to Jewish men.  Not anymore.  Jewish women are succeeding and leading on the podium, and in the recording studio and the orchestra.”

Bravissima! Jewish Women in Music, a program of Sunday Morning at The Braid, will take place April 7 from 10 a.m. to noon at The Braid, JWT’s art and performance space, located at 2912 Colorado Avenue, #102, Santa Monica.  Tickets are $25 and are available at www.jewishwomenstheatre.org.  The morning includes a live musical performance, light brunch and free parking.

“Part of JWT’s mission is to bring inspiring and interesting Jewish women from all walks of life to our theatre to enrich and inspire our community,” explains Ronda Spinak, JWT’s Artistic Director.  “So often we will see Jewish women of distinction on their ‘home courts,’ doing all sorts of remarkable things.  But we rarely get to know them or hear their stories. Our new program, Sunday Morning at the Braid, lets our audiences meet these accomplished women in a much more intimate and engaging way.”

Composer Miriam Cutler adds, “I’m very much looking forward to participating in the Bravissima!  Jewish Women in Music event with esteemed colleagues.  Everything I have done in my life is informed by my Jewish upbringing which valued social justice and celebrated the nourishment of the soul!”
