In conjunction with the performances, The National Yiddish Theatre - Folksbiene will host a tribute to Tilson Thomas, on Wednesday, April 6, which will include a private reception with the conductor and performer and his co-honorees David and Sylvia Steiner prior to the concert.
The Thomashefskys is a multimedia evening that celebrates Tilson Thomas' grandparents, Bessie and Boris Thomashefsky. It follows these Eastern European immigrants who played major roles in the development of American Yiddish theater, a central part of life on Manhattan's Lower East Side. The piece re-creates the atmosphere of the time through music, costumes, and projections of film clips, archival photos, posters, and other memorabilia.
