Reached your Jingle Bells limit?  Join Marvin Pinkert for an exploration of the influence of people of Jewish heritage on the American folk revival.  Marvin spent his summer vacation uncovering connections for our pop-up exhibit – An American Tune, and is taking us on an armchair journey through his adventure.  Music by Jewish composers on Dec. 25 – it’s not just White Christmas!
