Trio Sefardi

Jeremy Zwelling Memorial Concert featuring Trio Sefardi

Crowell Concert Hall


John Spencer Camp Professor of Music Neely Bruce presents a concert in memory of Jeremy Zwelling, Associate Professor of Religion, Emeritus, who passed away in May 2022 at the age of 81.

The concert will feature Trio Sefardi, a Virginia-based ensemble that, since 2010, has performed traditional songs of the Sephardim, the descendants of Jews exiled from Spain in 1492. The group consists of Howard Bass on lute, guitar, and percussion; Tina Chancey on bowed string, percussion, and backup vocals; and Susan Gaeta on vocals, guitar, and percussion. Their repertoire draws on the song traditions of Sephardic communities from the former Yugoslavia, Greece, Bulgaria, Turkey, and North Africa, with a special emphasis on traditional and original songs they learned from their mentor, Bosnian-born singer/composer Flory Jagoda.

Pianists Judy Zwordling Zwelling and Neely Bruce will perform works by Béla Bartók, Frédéric Chopin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Robert Schumann; and baritone Christopher Grundy will sing songs of Schubert.
