Jewish Composers of Hollywood’s Golden Age

Wednesdays at 12:00pm PDT

As the doors were closing in Europe, they were opening in America, welcoming Jewish refugees who would shape the future of American film scores. Together, we will discover how immigrants, many who escaped the Nazi regime, created the Hollywood music that we have all loved since childhood. We'll explore how that migration changed the landscape of American culture, and how famous scores, like those of Citizen KaneGone with the Wind, CasablancaBen-Hur, and Psycho were written and performed. Anecdotes and stories will be combined with audiovisuals and musical examples.
