Ron Sunshine and his 10-piece orchestra from NYC will team with world-renowned ethnomusicologist Dr. Judah Cohen for a one-time only engagement. Ron will perform Jazz standards from the 1930s with an emphasis on Jewish songwriters who produced them, such as the Gershwins, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Rodgers & Hart and others, while Dr. Cohen tells the story behind the music, and behind those amazing songwriters. Guests will enjoy passed hors d'oeuvres, and an open bar (LVKC supervised). After the presentation, the dance floor will be open for a swinging dance set with Ron and his Orchestra. 

Tickets are $18 in advance, $25 at the door and can be purchased at the Jewish Community Center front desk, by calling 610-435-3571 or online at www.lvjcc.org.
