A nice event today at 4:30pm over at the JASA Van Cortlandt Senior Center...

The JASA Van Cortlandt Senior Center invites you to join us for an ethnic meal and an evening of Greek, Ladino, and Yiddish folk music by folk artist Carol Freeman. Ms. Freeman is well known as a performer, researcher and teacher of Yiddish, Greek, and Balkan singing traditions. She is respected for her command of traditional singing styles and for her vast repertoire of folk and popular songs. Ms. Freeman will be accompanied by Ismail Butera, a virtuoso accordionist who has performed Yiddish, Balkan, Middle Eastern, Greek and African music with many celebrated ensembles for more than thirty years.

An ethnic meal consisting of moussaka, salad, Greek bread and dessert will be served at 4:30 pm followed by the musical program at 5:30 pm.

The recommended contribution for this event is $3.00 per person. For reservations, please call the center office at 718-549-4700.
