Crossings — a culinary and musical mosaic benefiting Copland House

October 20 @ 5:30 PM - 9:30 PM


Crossings — Copland House’s much-anticipated culinary and musical gala this year — is a surprising, multi-sensory sonic and epicurean experience … an enthralling narrative in taste, tone, and texture about migration across the generations to Manhattan’s fabled Lower East Side and its environs.

The wildly-innovative young chef Will Horowitz, “a fearless explorer” (The New York Times), and Music from Copland House, a “bold and adventurous ensemble” (The New Yorker), serve as guides on an imaginative gastronomic and audio tour rooted in the music, language, food, customs, and dreams of millions of emigres from every corner of the globe – hopeful exiles who, like Aaron Copland’s parents, were irresistibly drawn to America by its freedoms, opportunities, and ideals.

“Every culture,” Horowitz has said, “has this beautiful way of taking its techniques to a foreign land, then building on what they’ve just discovered to make something that’s both old and novel.” And through the music of Flannery Cunningham, Angel Lam, Gabriela Lena Frank, Derek Bermel, David Schiff and others, echoes of bygone peoples resound again. The magical, mystical setting for this one-night-only collaboration is the historic Angel Orensanz Center – dating from 1849, the oldest surviving synagogue building in New York City, fourth-oldest in the U.S., and a Lower East Side landmark, still animated by cultures from around the world. Please join us as Chef Horowitz and Copland House bring together the aspirational souls of the past and the vibrant spirits of today.

Event co-chairs: Dr. Ezriel Kornel & Lisa Schultz
