Adrienne Cooper Dreaming in Yiddish Event

December 30 is the night that people will gather in the Washington Square area for the third annual Dreaming in Yiddish event, hosted by Great Small Works and honoring a dear friend, Michael Wex.  The heart of the program will be a presentation of excerpts from Wex’s Yiddish translation of Brecht/Weill’s Three Penny Opera, with a stellar cast and orchestra.  I’ve been invited to be part of the Yiddish fracas and will be on stage singing the Army Song with who knows how many other friends and colleagues and Useless with Tine Kindermann.  Not to be missed!  Please click HERE for more...

HAZAK Scholar 2015

From June 24 through July 1, 2015, I’ll be a scholar/artist in residence at the annual USCJ Camp Hazak, scheduled for the Hudson Valley Resort and Spa in Kerhonkson, New York.  In addition to teaching a round of lecture/recitals on Yiddish song, I’ll be hanging an art show in the hotel lobby and will sing people through many of the visual representations of meaningful Yiddish material. This annual gathering draws active adult learners affiliated with the Conservative movement from around the country to explore arts, literature, and Jewish text and ritual in a resort setting.  And what a marvelous cohort of fellow scholars, including Eric Goldman, Rabbi Moshe Edelman, Gloria Goldreich, Sheldon Horowitz, and others steeped in Jewish learning. Come to summer camp! Tempted? Click HERE for more...

Mennonite Heritage Center Folk Arts Show

I’ll have 12 works hanging in the annual folk arts show benefiting the Mennonite Heritage Center in Harleysville, PA, opening December 6, 2014 and running through the month of December.  The works will range from English language illustrated quotes to Hebrew/English works taken from Pirke Avot and the Torah.  Of particular interest are several intricate papercuts.  In both language history and folk arts traditions, the Jewish and Pennsylvania German/Mennonite cultures have many points of intersection, and I look forward to being a featured artist among creators of Fraktur work and other lettering and paper arts....
