RE: Jewish music course idea requests

You might want to include some material on the Jewish classical composers of 
the 1930s, the composers of Terezin and entartete kunst (music banned by the 
Nazis).  These composers include Gideon Klein, Pavel Haas, Erwin Schulhoff, and 
others who, in their time were at least as renowned as Schoenberg, Berg and 
Kurt Weill, but whose careers were cut off by the Nazis.

Subject:        Jewish music course idea requests

Thanks to everyone who has responded to my request for ideas and info
regarding this course I am developing.  Its great to get input when at the
beginning stages of a project.  Given the way beaurcracies are organized
I'll bet I don't to offer the course for at least another semester or two,
but at least I'm off to a good start.  Once again, if you have any ideas,
old syllabi, names of old college profs etc. please feel free to send these
my way.  I have to say, the varied nature of the responses gives me some
real hope here.  In the future I'll be plugging my own activities on this
line, but for now
Todah and
Gut Shabbes,
