"A Musical Salute to Molly Picon, Star of the Yiddish Theatre" with Diane Cypkin at the Mahwah Library

Sunday, December 17, 2017

Dr. Diane Cypkin tells the life story of this exciting first lady of the Yiddish Stage through the countless songs she sang and often wrote during her many years as a entertainer. Indeed, the concert is a cornucopia and a beautiful bouquet of tangos, waltzes, and fox-trots that will have you humming for days. It is a tribute to a legend! Multi-faceted, Dr. Cypkin is a Professor of Media and Communications Arts at Pace University in New York, an accomplished entertainer as well as a curator responsible for highly successful exhibits on Molly Picon at Lincoln Center and the Yiddish Theatre at the Museum of the City of New York. She will be accompanied by Lena Panfilova, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory, who has performed as a collaborative pianist with many musicians and has given many solo and chamber concerts in Russia, across Europe, and in the United States. This program is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a "first come" basis.
