Traditional Passover songs: Mu Adabru, Dayeynu & Oifn Nil / Jewish People’s Philharmonic Chorus / JPPC
The Jewish People’s Philharmonic Chorus (JPPC) is a multigenerational forty-voice ensemble. We’re students, professionals, and robust retirees, all in love with singing and committed to promoting Yiddish language and culture through beautiful four-part harmony.
Few of us are fluent, but we all learn together from the Yiddish vocal literature—traditional folk songs, settings of classic and contemporary poetry, labor anthems, theater works, holiday standards, and modern pieces in translation.
